The official countdown to St Baldrick’s Bermuda 2023 begins with two months until the March 17th event! Men, women, and children in the community are encouraged to register their participation and fundraise to help conquer kids’ cancer!
In Bermuda we celebrate 22 years of involvement with The St Baldrick’s Foundation, over which time our community has raised an extraordinary $7,432,473! It is through The St Baldrick’s Foundation that Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre receives a grant - equalling 10% of total money raised from Bermuda events - to fund the SunSmart Programme. SunSmart provides free education to schools and summer camps and aims to increase the awareness of our youth about the importance of incorporating SunSmart behaviours into our daily lives u to reduce one’s risk of developing skin cancers later in life.
While shaving one’s head is traditionally the most common way to fundraise for St Baldrick’s, many participants opt to make a pony chop without going fully bald. Whatever your fancy, there is no wrong way to get involved and fundraise for this exceptional cause! Learn more and register your participation at https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/Bermuda2023#content. Then share your fundraising page with all your friends and family and request their generous support! This year’s shave event will take place on Friday, March 17th, starting at 6 pm at Docksider’s. So, please mark your calendars and come out for a fun evening that benefits our local community and an incredible global initiative.
Says Cheyra Bell, Event Organiser, “The Bermuda St. Baldrick's committee is looking forward to hosting the 22nd annual event on March 17, 2023. We would like to encourage any interested person to show support by donating towards this amazing cause of standing in solidarity and fighting for childhood cancer. If you would like to register as a Shavee and "Brave the Shave" it would be an honor to work with you throughout the process. Feel free to contact myself with any questions via email firstname.lastname@example.org”.
