Join the Fight


Every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer – about the time needed to log onto your laptop, order a coffee, or get through a TV commercial break.

It’s also about the same amount of time it takes to have your head shaved to support childhood cancer research. Join the fight against childhood cancers by participating in a St. Baldrick’s head-shaving event near you.

The clock is ticking...

Help fund research and clinical trials that save kids’ lives

Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s events have helped raise $262 million for lifesaving childhood cancer research.

Three reasons you should become a shavee.

BE A HERO

When you sit in the barber’s chair and put on that cape, you transform into a hero for kids with cancer. 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.

HAVE FUN

Fun always takes center stage at these events. (Even when there are tears!) Expect hugs, high fives and some cool swag.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

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.

Ready, Set, Shave

There are four simple steps to achieve shavee success, and we're with you all the way.
