“Every 2 minutes, a family receives the devastating news that their child has cancer. We can and will find the cures for childhood cancers through research, and we need your help.

Lowcountry Bald is raising money for childhood cancer research with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation – the largest private funder for childhood cancer research. Our head-shaving approach to fund raising is unique: volunteers (“shavees”) raise money by agreeing to have their heads shaved bald at a public event to stand in solidarity with children that lose their hair during cancer treatment. For their brave sacrifice, shavees ask their friends and families for donations. Shavees sometimes form teams to involve friends and co-workers in raising money together. Despite the serious intent, our events are festive, celebrating the triumphs we have achieved for kids through research.

In Charleston, this is our third year for Lowcountry Bald and our fundraising goal is bold: $100,000.  In our first year, 14 shavees raised $21,056. Last year, 40 shavees, including 7 women and 3 kids, raised an amazing $55,948.

Please join us. Whether you decide to shave your head, volunteer, or donate, we hope you’ll be a part of the excitement!”
