Grab the clippers, scissors and spray cans Sunshine Coast - the Leukaemia Foundation’s 16th annual World’s Greatest Shave is fast approaching! From 13-16 March thousands of Australians will make a bald move by sacrificing their hair to help support blood cancer patients.
The Leukaemia Foundation is encouraging people to get sponsored to shave, colour or wax their hair to help those impacted by blood cancers such as leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders. For anyone who has ever considered putting their locks on the line for the cause, it’s not too late to sign up at worldsgreatestshave.com.
Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland Regional Events Coordinator, Megan Blears, said the funds raised by the generous individuals, communities and businesses that support the World’s Greatest Shave allow the Foundation to continue its vital work of caring for blood cancer patients.
“There’s still plenty of time to sign up, whether it be as an individual, team, school or organisation. Participants can host their own event or go online to register for one of our fun public shave events which are held across the state,” Ms Blears said.
“This year we’re aiming to raise $5 million in Queensland which will fund medical research and go towards the provision of free support services, such as accommodation and emotional support, for patients and their families,” she said.
“This is a huge goal and we can’t achieve it without the support of those who get behind the World’s Greatest Shave either by taking part or making a donation to our brave participants.”
The Leukaemia Foundation of Queensland is a not-for-profit organisation and receives no on-going government funding. Free practical care and emotional support is available to patients and their families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. The Foundation also funds medical research into cures and improved treatments disorders.
