Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is coming to a close, but as a member of the St. Baldrick’s community, you know that lifesaving research must continue EVERY month.
Thank you for always being there for kids with cancer!
With 32 events in September, the St. Baldrick’s community raised more than $1.3 million for childhood cancer research.
Those funds will go toward the most promising research so that kids not just survive, but thrive after cancer, living longer and healthier lives.
Here are just a few of the highlights from the month – and a few ways you can help before the month is over!
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

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.
