National haircare franchise renews its commitment to St. Baldrick’s Foundation over the next three years.
GEORGETOWN, Texas — Sport Clips Haircuts, the nation’s leading haircare provider dedicated to men and boys, announced today its renewed commitment to St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest non-government funder of childhood cancer research grants, with another $1M donation over the next three years. This is the third million-dollar commitment Sport Clips has made to St. Baldrick’s since the partnership began in 2016. St. Baldrick’s is recognized for its head-shaving events where volunteers raise money through agreeing to shave their heads in solidarity with childhood cancer patients. Sport Clips’ national partnership with the foundation will provide additional critical funding, beyond what is raised at shave events, for promising childhood cancer research.
“Through our Haircuts With Heart program we believe in creating opportunities for Sport Clips team members to give back. So many talented Sport Clips stylists and franchisees volunteer their time in local communities to support St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events to help the cause of funding childhood cancer research at the local level. We are proud to continue our support of St. Baldrick’s and the efforts and the work of the foundation,” says Edward Logan, Sport Clips president and CEO.
“We are thrilled to renew this amazing partnership with Sport Clips. This support is vital to our funding of the research that results in new cures to give children with cancer a long and healthy life. Sport Clips’ generous commitment to our mission means so much to every part of the St. Baldrick’s community, from the kids and families who need this research, to the scientists developing new treatments, to all the stylists, shavees and volunteers banding together to raise funds to save lives,” says Kathleen Ruddy, CEO at St. Baldrick’s.
