Sport Clips Commits Another $1M Through Continued Partnership With St. Baldrick’s

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants, is proud to announce that Sport Clips has recommitted its efforts to conquer childhood cancers and will donate another $1 million to St. Baldrick’s over the next three years. In 2016, Sport Clips signed on as a St. Baldrick’s national partner and has since generously donated $1.1 million to support childhood cancer research.

 

“The extension of our partnership with St. Baldrick’s makes perfect sense, as our organizations make a great team with St. Baldrick’s hosting shave events and Sport Clips providing stylists to shave heads,” says Gordon B. Logan, Sport Clips Founder and CEO. “It has been a privilege to help St. Baldrick’s positively impact the lives of countless children by contributing to their research funding. We are excited to continue this relationship to expand the mission of this worthwhile organization.”

 

Since the launch of this partnership, Sport Clips has provided stylist support at more than 100 St. Baldrick’s signature head-shaving events, with more than 600 shavees directly connected to Sport Clips. Sport Clips will continue to support St. Baldrick’s by providing volunteer stylists for local events, promoting the mission of St. Baldrick’s at its store locations and organizing its own head-shaving events, among other activities.

 

“Sport Clips has been a tremendous partner in the fight against childhood cancers,” remarks St. Baldrick’s CEO Kathleen Ruddy. “Few companies have made so direct or lasting of an impact on the survival of children with cancer throughout the United States, and through their continued support St. Baldrick’s will be able to fund the most promising childhood cancer research to find cures and better treatments. We are grateful to be able to continue our partnership with Sport Clips and can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together over the next three years.”

 

Sport Clips will host its annual National Huddle in Las Vegas this April, where it will bring together more than 3,000 team members, including franchisees, managers, support team members and more from the U.S. and Canada. The event features nationally-recognized guest speakers, company highlights, educational breakout sessions—including one featuring St. Baldrick’s—and a vendor expo.
