So many awesome things happen at St. Baldrick’s events that it was tough to whittle the list down to seven. But here they are! Read on for the seven stupendous things that will happen at your St. Baldrick’s event.

1. You will make an impact

St. Baldrick’s volunteers are changing the world for kids with cancer. With $325 million going to research in 31 countries, we’re making a big impact on childhood cancer research — and it’s all thanks to you. Keep up the great work!

2. Heads will be shaved

St. Baldrick’s shavees go under the clippers to show support for kids with cancer, and raise money to give them the happy, healthy childhoods they deserve. Those are pretty good reasons to take a little (or a lot) off the top. So get the clippers and the capes ready — and let’s get the head-shaving party started!

3. You will be inspired

When you’re watching people go bald for kids with cancer or listening to stories from the frontline of a child’s cancer fight, it’s hard not to be inspired! Soak it up. That glow you feel in your heart is the hallmark of a St. Baldrick’s event, and it will be there long after the last head is shaved.
