The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.
When TeamBrent started 15 years ago, there was one local St. Baldrick's Foundation event at Bradford’s in Stamford. We started there and branched off on our own the next year. We’ve been thrilled to watch the growth of the St. Baldrick’s Foundation in events, reach and impact. In 2019 there were 20 events within 20 miles of the Westport YMCA (where we have held our last few events). Our team has raised over $4 million and held events at bars, schools, Arena at Harbor Yards, the YMCA, in Boston, in London, and in Singapore and had a lot of fun in the process. It is a good time for TeamBrent to hang up its organizer role and turn our attention towards helping other groups grow. Please reach out and let us know if we can help you start an event!
Would you shave your head for a child?
Want to stay involved in 2020? We do. Mike McCreesh, TeamBrent's co-founder, has just finished his term as Chairman of the Board for the St. Baldrick's Foundation and is really excited about the team in place today. Great things are ahead. All the local events are wonderful, and the funds go to the same place no matter where you participate! We have some former shavees starting brand new events that would love to have you - first up is Team Nicholas Sat Mar 21 in Norwalk. Details here: https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/mypage/13817/2020
We raised over $4.2 million for St. Baldrick's and made a difference. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2gVMlMyShg#t=19
We all rest in the shade of trees that we did not plant.
These Half-Lifers are the bALLd Stars of our event. Our other stars are our Knights - those who have participated for 7+ years. We have been proud to induct 118 people into the Knights of the Bald Table at TeamBrent events. This # is ridiculously high and says a lot about the passion of our community.
