Manchester resident Susan Castle will be among the 1,000 people shaving their heads in the fifth annual Kids’ Cancer Buzz-Off at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., next month.

New England tight end Rob Gronkowski once again will buzz his head at the fundraiser sponsored by One Mission, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support for children and families touched by pediatric cancer.

“I’m hyped to buzz my dome for the fourth year in a row with One Mission,” said Gronkowski. “The Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off is an inspiring day where everyone stands together and fights the battle against cancer. Gronk Nation always comes up big for One Mission, and I know this year will be no different. Be a hero. Make a difference. Get involved. The time is now!”

The event will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 8, at Gillette Stadium.
