Welcome to MedShave 2019!

We are the University of Calgary Medicine Class of 2021, and we are very excited to run our annual head shave event for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. This year, we are partnering for the first time with students from the Bachelor of Health Sciences and Neurosciences at the U of C! We have had incredible success in the past, with last year's class raising over $30,000 for Kids Cancer Care Foundation. This year, we want to raise the bar even higher, and we have set our fundraising goal at $50,000!

The event will center around the students, staff, and faculty who have individually raised funds for the Alberta Cancer Foundation shaving their heads or cutting their hair, but that isn't all! There will be several other activities, including: lunch, a silent auction, pie-the-prof, and items that will be raffled off over the course of the afternoon.

Date: February 14th, 2019 at 12:30pm 

Location: HRIC Atrium of the Health Sciences Center - 3330 Hospital Dr., NW (T2N 4N1)


Proceeds from the event directly support cancer patients and their families. Together with the Alberta Cancer Foundation, we identify the greatest needs and the biggest opportunities to improve patient experience.
