St. Baldrick's Fundraiser

St. Baldrick's Fundraiser

University of Louisville School of Medicine hosted our first St. Baldrick's event in February 2012. During that academic year, a couple brave medical students approached the Office of Medical Student Affairs asking for our support of the event. After months of planning, three medical students volunteered to shave their heads and raise money for children's cancer research. In total, those three medical students raised $3919.00.

In the past four years, the St. Baldrick's committee has raised over $40,000! A huge thank you to everyone who has been involved in this program.

This year, our St. Baldrick's event was scheduled for Thursday, February 26, 2015 in the Kornhauser Auditorium.  Close to twenty students volunteered to shave their heads! In addition to shaving heads, students also had the option to cut at least 8 inches of their hair and donate it to an organization that makes wigs for cancer patients.
