In March 2010, with the combined efforts of Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and Clark County Fire Department, hundreds of supporters gathered at Town Square to chop their locks supporting the Klip it for Kidz event. Raising more than $80,000.00, Klip it for Kidz will use the monies raised to directly fund more than 25 programs offered by the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF). These programs will provide social, emotional, educational, financial and psychological support services to families whose children have been diagnose with life threatening illnesses.
