Bald is Beautiful

Because the coronavirus pandemic continues to persist, BIB 2021 will once again be a virtual event. We are eagerly anticipating working with our community this year on a new fundraising platform, JustGiving, and through apps such as Zoom, Facebook and other social media!

Although our event is called Bald is Beautiful, we want to stress that there is no need to shave your head in order to participate! All fundraisers are welcome – with and without hair! The only thing required to participate is a willingness to help cancer patients by engaging with your family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to help us raise funds for financial assistance and cancer care.

All funds raised in 2021 will benefit The Patient Relief Fund and The Cancer Care Fund at Norris  Cotton Cancer Center – Kingsbury Pavilion. Every dollar raised stays local and has a direct and meaningful impact on the lives of our patients. We are truly grateful for having the help of so many to assist others in our community who are in need. Thank you!

 

We participate in Bald is Beautiful because raising money to help those with cancer is important to us. Having known so many people who have had cancer, we wanted to support The Kingsbury Pavilion/Norris Cotton Cancer Center. We love the fact all the money raised goes toward helping local patients with expenses for travel, medication, etc. This event also gives us an opportunity to honor all of the people we, our friends, and our family members have known who have had struggled against cancer.   – The Riggios

Tips for fundraising:

 
  • Let people know why you are participating.
  • Use all kinds of media – Facebook, Twitter, email, phone calls, etc. to ask for donations.
  • Share stories (with permission if needed) of people you know who have been impacted by cancer.
  • Start fundraising early.
  • Say “Thank You” often!!
