Because Bald is Beautiful

Since its inception in 2000, more than $5 million has been raised for oncology, hematology and bone marrow transplant patients at BC Children's Hospital through Balding for Dollars. These donations support a variety of programs and services aimed at enhancing the quality of life both during and after treatment for kids and families affected by cancer and blood disorders at BC Children's Hospital.

JUNE 12, 2021

Our 2019 Balding for Dollars event for our amazing 20th year celebration raised over $80,000. Over 500 family members, friends, and staff gathered at BC Children's Hospital to shave their heads or cut-off their locks in support of kids with cancer and to enjoy the carnival atmosphere, which included live bands, arts and crafts, a post-shave photo area, and an array of delicious goodies for participants and supporters to enjoy. 

In 2020, with COVID-19 challenges, we shifted to several campaigns that included a virtual Main Event via zoom, a Quarantine Kuts for Kids “cut or shave your hair from home” campaign, a button making endeavor for healthcare and other front line workers, and several other individual fundraisers. Those, plus our two faithful Whistler & Okanagan teams and their virtual events, helped us to raise over $200,000! An amazing feat considering all of the challenges and hardships of 2020.

This 2021 year we are still in challenging times, and are unable to gather for an in-person event, BUT we are continuing with our virtual campaigns and this year’s June 12th event is a DIY “event-in-a-box” so that participants can cut or shave from home (or a salon) and set up their own mini main event to enjoy with family & friends in person or virtually.  

If you’ve missed the June 12th event but still want to cut or shave your hair on your own and fundraise for our 2021 campaign, please sign up and we will send you a t-shirt and thank you card! We can be contacted at marissa.dunbar@cw.bc.ca for more information on getting involved. 

You can help us beat last year's total by signing up to shave/cut your hair, or simple just fundraise. Sign up for Balding for Dollars today and make a difference in the lives of kids affected by cancer and blood disorders.
