Be Bold, Be Bald! with Her Campus MNSU

Her Campus MNSU will go bald to fight cancer on 10/20/17.

Joining thousands across the country in Be Bold, Be Bald! fundraising event.

For many cancer patients, going bald is not a choice.  It is just one of the many challenges they face as they bravely fight the disease.  On October 20, 2017, Her Campus MNSU will join thousands of people across the country as they put vanity aside, and wear a bald cap to show solidarity with those who bravely fight cancer and raise money to help fight back. 

The event is Be Bold, Be Bald!, a national fundraiser started by Boston advertising agency, Small Army, after losing its co-founder to the disease. Since its first event in 2009, the event has raised more than $1,000,000, with 90% or more of the net proceeds going to cancer charities.

By going about their day as usual – commuting on the bus, meeting with colleagues, stopping in the local coffee shop, or going to class – participants get a small taste of what many cancer patients face.  And, others can sponsor them for their bold move. 

“I jumped on this opportunity right away. I know what impacts cancer has on not only the person it’s impacting, but also the family,” states Her Campus MNSU member, Briana Sieve. “Anything I can do to help, I will! My grandma had breast cancer and won the battle, and I want everyone to have the opportunity to win the battle.”

Now in its seventh year, Be Bold, Be Bald! unites and supports more than 40 cancer charities, from The Jimmy Fund and LIVESTRONG to smaller-scale charities such as Heaps of Hope and No Stomach for Cancer. Participants choose the charity for which they would like to support and grants are made accordingly.  For the event, to-date, due to generous donations and support, each of the participating cancer charities received more than 100% of the funds raised on their behalf. 

Her Campus MNSU is excited to participate in Be Bold, Be Bald! and put their heads together to find creative ways to raise money for the cause. Be on the lookout across all social media platforms this month to see us in action!
