Virtual Head Shaving Fundraiser

As the longtime charitable organization of choice for NAMIC, The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants in the United States. Since 2005, The St. Baldrick’s Foundation events have helped raise $300 million for lifesaving childhood cancer research. The organization has funded research breakthroughs such as new imaging techniques to help kids with brain tumors, new ways to use genomics to create new immunotherapies to target cancer cells, and the identification of different triggers of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in children versus adults.

The tradition of head shaving at the NAMIC Annual Convention will continue this year as part of the virtual 125th Annual Convention, marking the eighth year NAMIC has hosted a head shaving event at Convention.

Thinking about shaving? Here are three reasons you should become a shavee:

  1. Be a Hero
    When you sit in the barber’s chair and put on that cape, you transform into a hero for kids with cancer. As a shavee, you’re not only raising funds researchers depend on to cure childhood cancer — you’re also spreading awareness every time you show off your bald head.

  2. Have Fun
    Fun always takes center stage at these events. (Even when there are tears!) Expect (virtual) hugs, high fives, and support from your colleagues in the mutual insurance industry.

  3. Make a Difference
    Your commitment to shave for the cause raises more than funds and awareness — it shows kids who lost their hair during treatment that you support them, and it brings hope to their families and friends.
