World’s Greatest Shave

By  |  0 Comments

St Kilda locals are being asked to accept the hairy challenge of getting sponsored to shave or colour their hair to help people with blood cancer from the 10 -13th March.

The World’s Greatest Shave is on again supporting the Leukaemia Foundation. It ia a fun way to lessen the impact of blood cancer in our community.

“Today, 34 Australians will be given the devastating news that they have leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma, and they’ll turn to the Leukaemia Foundation for help,” said Stephanie Hechenberger, General Manager of the Leukaemia Foundation in Victoria.

“Getting sponsored to shave your hair is an extraordinary way to support them. The Foundation receives no ongoing government funding. World’s Greatest Shave helps us fund urgent life-saving research and give families the emotional and practical support they need, free of charge.

“When you’re healthy, it’s hard to understand the value of counselling, transport to and from chemotherapy, or being given a free place to stay during treatment if you come from the country. But this support matters when you’re too sick to work, and financial and emotional stress levels are high,” she said.

World’s Greatest Shave is accessible to people of all ages and you don’t have to shave your head to join this iconic Australian event.

“It’s so easy to take part. Simply sign up to shave, colour or wax your hair – which you can do so at home, work, school or our public events, then ask family and friends to sponsor you. We’ll also send you a free kit with brilliant tried and tested tips to set you up for success,” Ms Hechenberger said.
