Amazing People are Shaving Their Heads to Help Minnesota Kids
What once started out as a dare to shave a head is now raising millions for kids who hear the word "cancer" and once again, the event is coming to Rochester, Minnesota!
Are you brave enough to help out kids fighting cancer in Rochester, Minnesota
Every 2 minutes, a child is being diagnosed with "cancer". 2 minutes. By the time you are done reading this story, another child will have heard the devastating news that the fight of their life is about to begin.
St. Baldrick's was started to help out kids who are in that fight and the way people help raise money requires a little bit of bravery...and buzzing some hair.
Since no hospital has a monopoly on good ideas, St. Baldrick’s funds the most promising research — no matter where it happens.
Choosing that research takes more than 200 experts.
Funding it takes people like you!
Together, we support more childhood cancer research grants than any other charity.
