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

MAY 6, 2023

In 2022 we returned to our in-person Main Event, right next door to BCCH at Beth Israel’s beautiful outdoor courtyard location. We raised over $82,000 at our main event with one participant breaking records, rallying her online community, and raising nearly $26,000 herself before shaving her head on stage. This along with independent community events and our Whistler & Kelowna events, helped us to raise almost $200,000 in 2022!  Help us make 2023 an even bigger and better return.


We are pleased to announce our 2023 Balding for Dollars Main event for our 24th year of celebrations! We are welcoming past and current BCCH patients and their family members, friends, community members, BCCH staff and all of our supporters back to this event to either shave their heads or cut-their hair to donate, to fundraise, and to cheer on those who are participating and fighting childhood cancer. We will be enjoying the carnival atmosphere, which includes live music, games, special guests, celebrating donors, arts and crafts, photo-ops, and an array of delicious goodies. All of this is in support of kids with cancer and blood disorders in BC, and their families.


The event will be hosted outdoors on BC Children’s Hospital grounds, on Saturday May 6th, and we are so excited to be returning “home” after a long and hard 3 years away. This space is fully outdoor with much of it undercover and plenty of tents for rain & sun shade, regardless of weather.

We can be contacted at for more information on getting involved. 

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