UPDATE AS OF 03/20/2020
In response to the current state of events, we are changing our event to a virtual event. This means that shavees can shave whenever and wherever is convenient for them. You can shave at home or at a salon of your choice at your convenience (and in accordance with local regulations). We are so deeply appreciative of your participation and support. Please know that every dollar you have raised means so much to us and this worthy cause. Please email Rachael.Hernandez@gmail.com in order to coordinate t-shirt pickup once you have shaved and remember to update your participant page.
UPDATE AS OF 03/13/2020
In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and in keeping with the recommendations of the State of Illinois, the City of Chicago and St. Baldrick's, we have decided to postpone our event until further notice. I know that you may be disappointed, but I hope that you can all understand that every one of our organizing families has first hand experience with having an immunocompromised child. We take these matters very seriously. As soon as a new date is determined we will share that information with you. Thank you so much for understanding.
We are coming together this year to honor our brave angels and our current survivor. Join us in our fight against childhood cancer as we shave heads to raise funds for research. Childhood cancer research is grossly underfunded with less than 4% of federal funding going towards it. We need a cure! We are calling all Araceli’s Angels, Anthony’s Avengers, Higgins Heroes and Nick's Fight-ers to help! On March 29th from 1-4PM at Blackthorn Pub, come get your head shaved, raise much needed funds and have a good time.
Be a hero for kids with cancer!
Join this St. Baldrick's event, and whether you decide to shave your head, volunteer, or donate, we hope you'll be a part of the excitement!
The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
Get involved and you'll be giving hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers!
