Introducing the Baldrick’s Brigade!

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation has a very important job to do – and that’s to #DFYchildhoodCancers. It can’t be done alone, and in fact, it takes an army of supporters to make a difference. We’re proud to say that St. Baldrick’s donors and volunteers are all-in to help kids with cancer, raising money to fund the most promising pediatric cancer research. This year, we’re introducing the “Baldrick’s Brigade” – igniting our communities of supporters to do more in the fight against childhood cancers, together.

What is the Baldrick’s Brigade?

The Baldrick’s Brigade was formed to unite our most loyal supporters around the globe to be champions for kids with cancer and help further the St. Baldrick’s mission. It’s an army of individuals committed to raising critical funds, encouraging others to get involved, and spreading awareness to do more in their communities. It’s a team of enthusiastic donors and volunteers who go above and beyond to make a difference for kids.  

Every 2 minutes, somewhere in the world, a child is diagnosed with cancer, and of those who survive, 99% face lifelong health issues from treatment by age 50. While we’re proud to be the #1 private funder of childhood cancer research grants, there’s a lot of great research not yet funded. That’s where the Baldrick’s Brigade comes in – we’re rallying the troops, and with the partnership of our dedicated supporters, we can get there.

Membership in the Baldrick’s Brigade is earned annually by completing at least one of three activities to help raise critical funds that support the best childhood cancer research, wherever it takes place.
