Upcoming St. Baldricks Fundraisers in the Triangle

A number of fundraisers for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation are scheduled in the next month. St. Baldrick's coordinates worldwide head-shaving events, with volunteer “shavees” raising money to support childhood cancer research.

Last year, St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research, awarded a grant of $52,784 to the N.C. Children's Hospital. These grants are designated to either help institutions treat more kids on clinical trials (their best hope for a cure) or provide resources to make more research possible. The grant awarded to UNC was used to fund a dedicated Spanish interpreter for the pediatric oncology division at the Children's Hospital.

St. Baldrick’s began as a challenge between friends and has exploded into the world’s largest volunteer-driven fundraising program for childhood cancer research.
