The year was 2000, and the annual reinsurance industry’s St. Patrick’s Day party, held at Jim Brady’s pub in Manhattan, becomes the first St. Baldrick’s event. The goal of shaving 17 heads and raising $17,000 turns into 19 bald heads and $104,000 donated to fund the research of the Children’s Oncology Group.

NAMIC CEO Chuck Chamness explains the history of the charitable foundation, which is now the largest funder of research into childhood cancer after the Federal Government. Last year St. Baldrick’s directed over $30 million to the cause. Mr. Chamness also explains his very personal reasons for becoming part of the charty.
