So many wonderful 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 definitely 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 $258 million going to research in 29 countries, we’re making a big impact on childhood cancer research — and it’s all thanks to you. Keep up the great work!
2. Heads will be shaved
St. Baldrick’s shavees go under the clippers to show support for kids with cancer, and raise money to give those kids the happy, healthy childhoods they deserve. Those are pretty good reasons to take a little (or a lot) off the top. So ready the clippers and the capes — let’s get the head-shaving party started!
3. You will be inspired
When you’re watching people go bald for kids with cancer or listening to stories from the frontline of a child’s cancer fight, it’s hard not to be inspired! Soak it up. That glow you feel in your heart is the hallmark of a St. Baldrick’s event, and it will be there long after the last head is shaved.
4. The community will come together
Conquering childhood cancer is a cause everyone can get behind. St. Baldrick’s events attract people from all walks of life, strengthening communities and building ties while funding crucial research. Plus, who wouldn’t want to see their neighbor go bald?
5. It will be fun
Music, dancing, prizes, sword swallowing — OK, maybe not sword swallowing, but you get the gist. St. Baldrick’s events are big, fun parties for good. Who doesn’t like a good shindig for a great cause?
6. There will be surprises
From spur-of-the-moment shaves to marriage proposals, your event will have its share of surprises. Your event wouldn’t be a St. Baldrick’s event without them! So strap yourself in — your St. Baldrick’s event is going to be a crazy ride!
7. You will want to do it all over again next year
Making an impact while having fun feels good, doesn’t it? Trust us, conquering kids’ cancer with St. Baldrick’s is so awesome that you’re going to want to come back for another year.
