The annual Shave for the Brave event, a fundraiser to fight childhood cancer, is set for 5 to 7 p.m. March 24 in the Abel Hall Welcome Center.

The National Residence Hall Honorary is partnering with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation on the event, in which people shave their heads to raise funds.

Participants are encouraged to form a team representing an organization, floor, class or department. A prize is awarded to the team that raises the most money. To register a team, click here.

People can sign up as individual shavees or volunteers here. Those with hair 8 inches or longer can donate it to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program to help make wigs for children going through cancer treatments.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 1999 with the aim of raising funds to help find cures for children with cancer by shaving heads in solidarity. The inaugural event was hosted in March 2000, with $104,000 being raised by 19 shavees. Thanks in large part to the events, the foundation has been able to grant more than $253 million to support the development of childhood cancer treatments.
