IN THE U.S. 1 IN 5 CHILDREN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER WILL NOT SURVIVE. Since St. Baldrick's began, the 5-year survival rate has risen from above 79% to 85%. But there are still cancers no child survives. And 5-year survival isn’t the same as a cure. Many kids are still in treatment 5 years after diagnosis, or die after that milestone. Kids with cancer need your help more than ever.

Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s events have helped raise over $322 million for lifesaving kids' cancer research.
As a shavee, you’re not only raising funds researchers depend on to cure childhood cancer —you’re also spreading awareness every time you show off your bald head.
Fun always takes center stage at these events. (Even when there are tears!) Expect hugs, high fives and some cool swag.
Your commitment to shave for the cause raises more than funds and awareness — it shows kids who lost their hair during treatment that you support them, and it brings hope to their families and friends.
Customize a participant page with your information. (It's easy. We promise.)
Make the most of your efforts by collecting as many donations as possible. Fundraising tips and tricks are at your fingertips.
Enjoy the entire event experience, because there's nothing like it.
Every good head-shaving event needs a passionate volunteer event organizer, better known as a VEO. Are you just the person to bring this party for good to your community?Learn about VEOs
