Each weekday in North America, approximately 46 mothers are told that their child has cancer.
The 46 Mommas represent all mothers who make the cancer journey with their child. Our annual teams are comprised of mothers from across the U.S. and Canada, with different backgrounds, beliefs and lifestyles; there is one thing that we have in common – childhood cancer. The 46 Mommas Campaign has raised more than $1.6 million for The St. Baldrick’s Foundation since our inaugural event in 2010. Each year, a new class of 46 Mommas is inducted into the cause to empower and engage mothers of children with cancer.
For our Lucky 7 Shave in 2016, there is no better place for the 46 Mommas to go than Las Vegas! Come celebrate with us as we reach – and exceed - $2 MILLION raised for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and childhood cancer research! We’re honoring the roots of the first St. Baldrick's pub events and holding our shave at McMullan's Irish Pub on Sunday, July 24th. If you are the mother of a child who has or had cancer, and you would like to be a part of the 2016 team, email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application. And if you can’t make it to the event and would still like to support the 46 Mommas, please consider making a donation or even planning your own event!
In addition to our signature annual shaves, there have been many events held regionally by family and friends to support our overall fundraising effort. The Virginia Tech Hokies Baseball Team hosts an annual shave event connected to the 46 Mommas Campaign. For several years Votre Vu Cosmetics sponsored a fundraising initiative in called Color It Forward. There have been individual shaves, rocket launches, dance parties, comedy nights, bake sales, and more! Anyone – even YOU – can join the 46 Mommas Campaign by hosting a connected fundraiser of any kind or size in your own backyard to help us raise funds for The St. Baldrick’s Foundation. We encourage everyone to help us make a highly visible difference and Conquer Kids' Cancer.
