No Hair, Don't Care 2nd Annual Tortoise & Hair 5k Run / 1 Mile Walk

We first met Kayla Campbell and her family in September of 2011 at the Washington Nationals game.  Kayla has Alopecia Areata and was looking for ways to raise awareness and also do some community events.  She started No Hair, Don't Care and began rasing funds and awareness around the Frederick, Maryland area. She has hosted several fundraisers and last year she had the first 5k. They are 1 month away from their 2nd  annual No Hair, Don't Care Tortoise & Hair 5k Run/1 Mile walk.  While we cannot attend due to baseball season, we do want to help spread the word for the great job Kayla is doing.  Here are the details:
