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.

Help make a difference for more kids and their families. Make an online contribution, join an existing event, or register your own fundraising page for Balding for Dollars now. For more information, please visit baldingfordollars.com.


JUNE 12, 2021 - Times & Location TBA

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.

We normally host an in-person event on the BCCH grounds and we are working hard to prepare an event and some other campaigns for this 2021 as we continue to stay safe and await more immunity. All COVID restrictions and guidelines will be strictly adhered to, so that may affect the location and type of event we are able to host. Likely it will be a hybrid of some kind between something virtual and something well-distanced, outdoors and safe if we’re able to. Details to follow as soon as we have them. In the meantime, please sign up if you are interested in fundraising for Balding for Dollars and/or shaving or cutting your hair! 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.
