We double-dog-dare-you to recruit one friend to shave or volunteer – share this headline and get your friends and family involved.
St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen and have grown from one event in 2000 to over 1,290 events in 2012, raising critical funds for childhood cancer research. Events take place in pubs, restaurants, schools, sports events, churches, parks, malls, military bases, firehouses and any other place you can imagine.
The shaving is just a means to an end. We don’t make wigs, collect hair to soak up oil spills, or long to be just like Britney Spears. On the surface, we shave because kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment, and we stand proudly bald beside them. But the true goal – to cure childhood cancer – will be accomplished because, while shaving, we raise critical funds for childhood cancer research.
