St. Baldrick's Foundation is BRHLL's give-back charity. BRHLL's personal connection to this amazing foundation gives us a special reason to make this charity a priority for our league, emphasizing to our kids how important it is to focus on a good cause.

Jack Klein was a 10-year-old boy who loved BRHLL and was loved by all who knew him.  Jack passed away in 2016 after a 10-month fight with Burkitt Lymphoma, and our community comes together to honor him and all casualties of childhood cancer.  Unfortunately, Jack was the one in five children diagnosed with cancer that don't survive.  St. Baldrick's is devoted to changing that statistic and to improving the quality of life of childhood cancer survivors and the often brutal toll the treatments can take in the long-term. All funds raised will go to St. Baldrick's in the everlasting hope that they can spur research to save children from this awful disease.


Last year we successfully raised over 100K and Mayor Hogsett shaved his head! This year our challenge for Mayor Joe is 125K! We’re not stopping there.  We are shooting for $160K this year for Jack! For Pediatric Cancer Research! And for all the kids who need us to help them beat this awful fight!


2019 Shave or Braid Event will be held on June 1!
