You’re invited! Be part of our first annual Community Shave

In recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, Kids Cancer Care will be hosting our first annual community shave event! We are encouraging individuals, teams, community groups and co-workers to band together to show support and raise funds for youth and their families affected by cancer.

The shave is taking place on Saturday, September 7, 2013 at the Trico Centre (11150 Bonaventure Drive SE, Calgary) and you won’t want to miss it! This event is a pledge-based program in which event participants will set a fundraising goal and seek to achieve that goal by requesting donations. You can choose to participate in the Kids Cancer Care Community Shave event in the following ways:

Shave Your Lid for a Kid!®
This bold move shows moral support for the children and youth who lose their hair during cancer treatments. By shaving it all off you also have the option to donate your hair to make wigs for kids.

 Cut for Kids 
The idea of shaving your head can be a bit overwhelming; another way to get involved is to donate your hair. By cutting your hair, you’ll be helping create wigs for children who need them. Click here for more information about hair donation.
Stash for Cash
This is a fun and new addition to the Shave Your Lid for a Kid!® program! We will see some brave men shaving their beloved mustaches in support of Kids Cancer Care.


This event gives you and/or your team the opportunity to be a part of an incredible community initiative working towards a cure for every child and care for every family. Funds raised at this event will go toward funding Kids Cancer Care camp and community programs, hospital programs, research and scholarships.
