Kids can’t fight cancer alone...

Since 2007, as part of the St. Baldrick’s Chicago Area Schools Challenge, local students, faculty, and their communities have united to Conquer Childhood Cancers, shaving more than 32,000 heads in solidarity with kids who typically lose their hair during childhood cancer treatment. In that time, they have raised more than $11.1 million for childhood cancer research - but that is just a drop in the bucket of what is needed to win this battle.

In 2015, more than 4,700 "shavees" at 109 area schools Braved the Shave to raise more than $1.8 million - the most raised by any campaign in St. Baldrick’s Foundation history!
