On March 12th hundreds of people, including honored kids, shavees, volunteers, and cheering onlookers, will gather at Back East Bar & Grill for the annual St. Baldrick’s event.
Elope has been involved with St. Baldrick’s for over 16 years, and this year we are teaming up with Back East Bar & Grill to make an even bigger impact. We will have teams from all over the region shaving their heads and raising money for childhood cancer research.
This year alone the event has raised $61,701 out of its $65,000 goal!
48 League Members
This year we have three of our very own elopians who are going to brave the shave. Keith Johnson, Kevin Johnson, and Becca Sickbert!

“I’m shaving my head for the 16th time to raise money for childhood cancer research! Did you know that kids’ cancers are different from adult cancers?
It’s true. And childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.”

Fundraising Goal: $10,000

“I’m shaving my man bun and my giant mustache (basically all the hair above my neck except my eyebrows) to raise money for childhood cancer research! I know there is aversion in society to the man bun. Here is your chance to do something about it. Also, if you dislike mustaches as well, here is your chance to get rid of two for one.
Childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures.”

“The biggest cosplay project I’ve ever taken on is this CAUSEplay to kick kids’ cancers to the dark dimension. And I need your help to fund the final piece: shaving my head at the St. Baldrick’s event on March 12!
When I was a kid growing up in Longmont, I lost a good friend to brain cancer. It was a heartbreaking way to learn that kids’ cancers are different from adult cancers. And that childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded.”
