The First Million
With 37 head–shaving events in the spring of 2002, shaving heads has now raised more than $1 million!
This volunteer–driven event is catching on across the country.
Firefighters, police officers and military troops have been a big part of St. Baldrick's from the very beginning. Thousands have added head-shaving to their public service, with events in police and fire stations across the US, and even military bases in Iraq and Germany!
A Foundation Emerges
Founders make the leap—the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is created to maximize this volunteer–driven effort. The priorities: spending as little as possible to raise each dollar, and making sure every donation goes to the best research to find cures for kids fighting cancer.
