World’s Greatest Shave
Help shave the world from blood cancer
The World’s Greatest Shave aims to raise $16.5 million in 2020, when extraordinary superheroes are on a mission to shave the world from blood cancer by getting sponsored to shave or colour their hair.
When you sign up and raise money for the World’s Greatest Shave you’re giving people living with blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need.
By raising money through World’s Greatest Shave, you’ll be working with the Leukaemia Foundation towards our goal of Zero Lives Lost to Blood Cancer by 2035.
You can help ensure families facing blood cancer have a place to call home during treatment, someone to turn to, and access to the best possible care and treatment.
You’ll also help drive funding for Australia’s best and brightest researchers in their quest to deliver rapid advancements in diagnosis, treatment, and ultimately a cure.
Celebrating 22 years
In 2020, the Leukaemia Foundation will celebrate 22 years of the World’s Greatest Shave campaign. The World’s Greatest Shave began back in 1998 is now one of Australia’s biggest and most loved fundraising events.
People of all ages will shave, colour, or wax the hair on their head, chest or face – supported all the way by proud family, friends, colleagues and classmates
Some will have a personal connection to blood cancer, while others take part simply to have fun, tick a bucket list box and raise money for a good cause.
More than 2 million Aussies have taken part over the past two decades, with an estimated 37,5000 kilograms of hair removed!
