St. Baldrick’s Foundation Partnership
Lambda Chi Alpha will be embarking on a new partnership for 2017 with The St. Baldrick’s Foundation—the largest funder of childhood cancer research outside the U.S. Government. They have funded over $200 million in research grants since 2005. They do this primarily through their signature head-shaving events where people volunteer to shave their heads to stand in solidarity with kids fighting cancer and raise money from friends and family to fund life-saving childhood cancer research!
Why are we getting involved? Because of these startling facts: Every two minutes worldwide a child is diagnosed with cancer. In the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease. The good news is, we have the power to change this!
Our goal is to have 25 percent of our chapters participate or host one of St. Baldrick’s Signature Head-Shaving Events. Lambda Chi Alpha brothers will obtain new leadership skills, real life work experiences, networking opportunities and truly make an impact by providing hope to the families and children affected by cancer. Best of all? If we reach our goal, then Director of Chapter Services Nick Zuniga will shave his head.
So, how do you get involved? Complete this form and we’ll connect you with the St. Baldrick’s Team and they’ll take it from there.
It is important for Lambda Chi to provide opportunities for personal, professional and leadership development for its brothers and we truly hope you see the value in what St. Baldrick’s has to offer.
Let’s see how much we can raise together!
