At an age when most girls are concerned about their appearance, 9-year-old Sadie Madden shaved her head.

She took part in a fundraiser Thursday night in LaGrange for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which works to find a cure for childhood cancers.

Sadie originally hoped to raise $500 by shaving her long, curly red hair.

She raised more than $9,200, topping everyone else at the event.

As for the new hair, she says it feels "amazing."
