Kids with cancer often lose their hair during treatment. As a "shavee," participants have their heads shaved to show support — and in the process, inspire friends and family to donate to childhood cancer research.
Shave events began as a challenge between businessmen and have grown from one event in the year 2000 to over 1,400 events by last year. Nearly half a million shaved heads later! Since 2005, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has invested over $203 million in childhood cancer research grants worldwide.
