What it means to support Sanford Health through Brave the Shave

Brave the Shave is offering more opportunities to fight childhood cancer this year. Participants and donors are determining where their donations go. Want to help fund childhood cancer research at the national level? Support local families battling childhood cancer? Give back to the local facilities that aid in advancing children’s health? It’s up to the person being brave.

There are five choices on bravetheshave.coop: St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Brave the Shave Family Fund, Bismarck Cancer Center Foundation, CHI St. Alexius Health’s NICU, and Sanford Health – Pediatric Oncology.

This annual multi-state charitable campaign raises money for pediatric cancer. The sole mission is to help kids, their families and support the full spectrum of their cancer journey. Since starting this campaign in 2008, more than 2,000 of people have volunteered at Brave the Shave events, cut their hair or shaved their heads to support impacted children, raising nearly $2 million.
