About St. Baldrick's
The St. Baldrick's Foundation raises awareness and funds to fight childhood cancer. While battling cancer, children lose not only their hair but years of their childhood, and sometimes their lives. Participants in a St. Baldrick's event shave their heads in exchange for donations towards research. It's a simple concept, a fun time and a very effective fundraiser - since its founding in 2000, the St. Baldrick's Foundation has raised over $ 69 million by shaving over 106,000 heads in 24 countries.
