So many awesome things happen at St. Baldrick’s events that it was tough to whittle the list down to seven. But here they are! Read on for the seven stupendous things that will happen at your St. Baldrick’s event.
1. You will make an impact
St. Baldrick’s volunteers are changing the world for kids with cancer. With $325 million going to research in 31 countries, we’re making a big impact on childhood cancer research — and it’s all thanks to you. Keep up the great work!
St. Baldrick’s volunteers tend to be remarkable folks. But even among tens of thousands of outstanding people who are quite literally saving lives by supporting childhood cancer research, Richard Kligler and his family stand out.
Fathers and sons have played a big role in the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, many creating their own legacy by shaving and fundraising together. Others have just begun a tradition that may last for decades.From left to right: James and Dave, Samuel and Clifton, Dylan and Jim
Jeni Donahue made an extraordinary decision to honor her late husband – to shave her head in his place. Keith Smith was a St. Baldrick’s shavee for eight years, personally raising more than $12,700 for childhood cancer research as a member of the Superheroes in Kilts team. In 2020, he even shaved while battling cancer, himself.
The cape comes off, the broom comes out and there’s a chill around your dome that wasn’t there a few minutes ago. You’re bald … now what?
Continue fundraising to #DFYchildhoodCancers, that’s what!

Being bald means thinking about hair (or scalp) care in a whole new light. Fortunately, taking care of a shaved head is easy with these six tips.
Every year, tens of thousands of men, women, and kids shave their heads for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. They do it for one reason — to #DFYchildhoodCancers.
Whether you’ve recently shaved or you’ve been sporting the no-hair look for years, do you know the best bald head care practices? Neither did we, so we turned to the men and women who have helped more people go bald than anyone else we know: our St. Baldrick’s barbers.
UPDATE: Like all of you, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation is well aware of the concerns regarding large public gatherings across the country. In light of COVID-19 and our concerns for the well-being of the entire St. Baldrick’s community, especially the most vulnerable among us, the Foundation’s Board of Directors has adopted the latest CDC guidance for public events. As Foundation practices never override civil laws, regulations, or public health policies and recommendations, effective immediately, all St. Baldrick’s head shaving events should be postponed to May 15 or later. While we all hope it will not be necessary, we will monitor CDC guidelines in the event it becomes necessary to extend that deferral. If you have not yet been notified of any changes to the status of your event, please check the event’s page to see if the date has changed, or send your VEO an email and request an update. Their contact information is located on the event page by the event details.
