Head–Shaving Events


Join the movement funding the best childhood cancer research — one shavee℠ at a time.

This bold act of baldness has gained major momentum since its start in 2000. Today, we have more than 1,000 head-shaving events taking place around the world at pubs, restaurants, schools, churches, parks, firehouses, military bases – you name it. Now’s your chance to make a difference in a fun and meaningful way.

Headshave for Cures

Here’s an inside look at our volunteer-organized head-shaving events.

Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s events have helped raise $253 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.
