About This Event

The St. John's Community Shave is our biggest Shave each year! It's an event for Shavers who come on their own, sports teams, groups of friends, colleagues, siblings, spouses, and more!

Shave for the Brave is Young Adult Cancer Canada’s (YACC) biggest fundraiser, and provides the majority of the funds for all of the support programs YACC provides. 

There are also large symbolic and emotional components to any Shave event. Donating your hair for wigs or shaving your head bald is a big sacrifice and those who participate have a lot invested in the activity. Some do it to support a loved one dealing with cancer, to remember someone they lost to cancer, or simply to help support the cause. By participating in larger Shaves, people get to show the world that they care. The very personal action, combined with a public setting, makes for a unique and unforgettable experience!

Becoming bald or wearing a bright yellow Shave for the Brave toque are also very physical ways participants support the brave young adults dealing with cancer in Canada.
