On March 24th, 2011, 123 UVA students, faculty, and community members shaved their heads in honor of children with cancer at Boylan Heights. The event raised over $100,000 for children's cancer research, and St. Baldrick's gave two grants to the UVA Health System this year!

The St. Baldrick's Foundation is the #1 provider of research grants for children's cancer prevention and treatment in the country, which depend entirely on private donations and volunteer fundraising events like ours.

Want to get involved? For many, participating in St. Baldrick's is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This means that we need a whole new crop of volunteers this year to continue our commitment to ending children's cancer! Ask a past shavee (there are many around you!) - chances are, they will tell you that participating was one of the most gratifying decisions of their life.

If you want to keep updated on fundraisers like bar nights and bake sales, join our listserv here: https://lists.virginia.edu/sympa/info/stbaldricks2012. We'd also appreciate it if you would fill out a survey to let us know how you'd like to be involved: https://docs.google.com/a/virginia.edu/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dDljdjdDUTBpbW9yWm1tWVVJZmZZNnc6MQ

This is your chance...there will never be a better time to advance treatment and find a cure. Whether you decide to shave your head, volunteer, or donate, we hope you'll be a part of the excitement!
