Going to Great Lengths to Raise Awareness
The Bald & The Beautiful began in 2009 when a small group of Notre Dame freshmen planned an event to benefit pediatric cancer research after a classmate lost his fight with cancer. Since then, The Bald & The Beautiful has raised more than $240,000 with all proceeds benefiting Memorial Children’s Hospital, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and Pantene Beautiful Lengths. To date, TBAB has raised nearly $45,000 for the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Department at Memorial Children’s Hospital.
