Meet Jacob Henretta – An Amazing 10 Year Old

Jacob Henretta, COMPEL member Matt Henretta’s 10 year old son, is the captain of Shamrock Shavers, a group of kids who volunteer to shave their heads to raise funds for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. St. Baldrick’s  is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives. Jacob has been participating in the shaver fund raiser for the past three years. At the March 25th fundraising event, Jacob raised $1,385, more than any other participant. Every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer, which is why funding research is so important. Congratulations Jacob!
