National Volunteer Week: Meet Jessica and Dr. Schultz
As we wrap up National Volunteer Week, today we’ll meet two more volunteers with very different stories: one is the mom of a child diagnosed with cancer; the other, a researcher who’s devoted her career to early detection of childhood cancers.
Both will show us that it doesn’t matter how you get involved – just that your involvement is crucial to the work of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
Get Creative with a “Do What You Want” Fundraiser
Head-shaving events have been a core part of the St. Baldrick’s fundraising experience for nearly two decades. Today, St. Baldrick’s has funded more than $258 million in grants for childhood cancer research, with much of that money raised through head-shaving events. The research and clinical trials funded by these events have saved kids’ lives.
But we need more money to fund research to save lives. Cancer continues to rob kids of their childhoods and, in too many cases, their lives. We simply cannot accept that, worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes and that, in the U.S., one in five of those kids won’t survive.
Whether you’re new to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation or a seasoned fundraising pro, we know that our signature head-shaving events might not be for everyone. Did you know there’s another way to join us in the fight against childhood cancer, that doesn’t require you shave your head?
Join the Fight: Shave Your Head for Kids’ Cancer Research
It’s time once again to join the fight against childhood cancers by funding research and clinical trials that can stop this disease from taking more lives.
You may be a past participant or someone who’s been on the fence about joining a head-shave event. Regardless of your past involvement, we urge you to join our fight to take childhood back from cancer.

A Home Run for Kids’ Cancer Research: Adam’s MLB Road Trip
