Be the Change — Bring Bald for Bucks to Your School!

Bald for Bucks started as a promise between a brother and sister. Over the years, this fundraising program has grown to be a meaningful way to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients. This year, make it your personal promise to someone who has been affected by cancer and go Bald for Bucks!

Not only is Bald for Bucks a fun way to rock a new hairstyle with your friends, but it’s also a great leadership opportunity that helps build community inside and outside the classroom.

You’ll learn how to fundraise and promote your event, how to thank your donors, the importance of giving back and so much more.

Make your school year an impactful one — go Bald for Bucks!
