shave your lid for a kid®
Is Kids Cancer Care's largest fundraising initiative,
raising more than $9 million since its inception in 1998.
Our shave program is successful because of you. Each year,
hundreds of Albertans like you shave their heads for our
kids. This bold move shows moral support for the kids who
lose their hair during cancer treatments, while raising
money for camp, research, hospital and scholarship programs
for young people affected by cancer.
