Get Involved

You're just the hero we've been looking for.

Whether you want to shave your head, start a fundraiser, raise awareness, or create a fund that honors a loved one, you have the power to fund research that saves kids’ lives.

Childhood cancer cures start here.

Shave Your Head

St. Baldrick's head-shaving events are where it all began. Nearly half a million shaved heads later, they’re still our most popular fundraiser.

Kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment. As a "shavee," you’ll shave your head to show your support — and in the process, inspire friends and family to donate to childhood cancer research.

Sign up to go bald at one of the thousands of local head-shaving events, or join the “virtual event” to shave on your own.

Create Your own Fundraiser

Our ”Do What You Want” fundraisers are the perfect way to raise money your way for childhood cancer research.

Run a 5K, donate your birthday, host an all-night video game battle — this is a fundraiser that’s all you. You’ll have your own online page to collect donations, and can hold your fundraiser whenever, wherever you want. Plus it’s super easy to get started.

Involve Your Business or Organization

Work together for childhood cancer cures.

St. Baldrick's began with three executives who were looking for a creative way to support childhood cancer research. Whether your company or organization is big or small, we can help you get involved in a way that best suits your needs.

Partner with St. Baldrick's

Yes, we are those crazy head-shaving people.

But that's not all that makes us unique. St. Baldrick's does one thing and we do it well: We fund childhood cancer research.

As the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, you can be sure that the money you raise will fund the very best research in the U.S. and around the world. In fact, volunteers and donors like you have made possible over $230 million in grants since 2000.

(Pretty crazy, huh?)
