St. Baldrick's Event March 17

Brave a Shave for Kids with Cancer #RockTheBald

For the second year, Solvay High School (HS) will host the annual St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraising event. On Friday, March 17, the Solvay community is invited to join Solvay HS and the Solvay Union Free School District (UFSD) in helping to conquer childhood cancers. The St. Baldrick’s event will take place at Solvay HS on March 17 from 12:45 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., with shavees taking the stage to have their heads shaved in the Solvay HS auditorium.

Are you looking to become a shavee, fundraiser, or volunteer for a great cause? Please visit Solvay’s St. Baldrick’s site at

St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events began as a challenge between businessmen in 2000. Since then, the event has grown to over 1,200 events each year, helping to raise funds for childhood cancer research. Since 2005, St. Baldrick’s Foundation has provided $200 million in grants to fund childhood cancer research and help find kid-friendly cancer cures and treatments.

Last year, over $22,000 was raised by the Solvay community for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. This year, the goal is to raise $15,000. To learn more about events happening at Solvay HS in support of St. Baldrick's, please visit the Solvay HS St. Baldrick's Facebook page at
