Be a hero for kids with cancer! Join our St. Baldrick's event, and whether you decide to shave your head, volunteer or donate, we hope you'll be a part of the excitement.

Last year, the first UW Shave to Save event held on May 3, 2013 raised more than $30,000 for patient care and cancer research at American Family Children’s Hospital and the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center.

UW Shave to Save is joining forces with St. Baldrick's Foundation, a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives. By working with St. Baldrick's, we will be contributing to an organization that provides more than $2 million of funding for pediatric cancer research at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The event also will include a raffle, with all proceeds to benefit the Carbone Cancer Center.
