Supertastical St Baldricks: Kyra

“I will show you fear in a handful of dust.”
~ T.S. Eliot

Remember that time when you were a girl growing up, and every year throughout your teen years you shaved your head to help find a cure for pediatric cancer? Um..yeah. Me neither.

Throughout braces and becoming a teenager, homecoming and band competitions, middle school AND high school, Kyra has been shaving her head to fight children’s cancer. Since she was TEN. Look at that cutest little face below – that was her first St Baldrick’s event. And seven years later, as a junior in high school, she is braving the shave again this Friday – raising money for pediatric cancer research, and inspiring a flood of others to follow in her footsteps.

The St Baldrick’s event is ‘supertastical’ (yes, that’s Kyra’s word :)  If you want to be inspired by this tremendous outpouring of love and hope, come join us on Friday, March 11th at Fado’s in Denver. Shave time is 3:30 – I can’t wait to see you there.

Team Tuesday ~ Grady

denver colorado headshot kids portraits teenager high school senior portraitThere are heroes among us. Everyday people doing extraordinary things. Inspirational acts of courage and selflessness.

This is Grady, another superstar member of Team Tuesday, raising money for childhood cancer research and getting ready to shave for the seventh year in a row at the Denver St. Baldrick’s event.  Just check out his sweet face (pictured below) from back in 2010 when he was 9. Seven years later, he’s still dedicated to participating. “I shave because I am able to. And it is the right thing to do. It will help continue to support finding a solution to childhood cancer.” Rockstar.

“The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion and compassion and humor and style and generosity and kindness.”
~ Maya Angelou

Team Tuesday Spotlight ~ St Baldricks Knights

Meet Spencer. team tuesday st baldricks denver event colorado high school senior portrait

Spencer is today’s rockstar spotlight. He is in 9th grade and has been participating in St Baldrick’s by raising money to help fund pediatric cancer research in honor of his little sister Tuesday, who lost her battle with neuroblastoma when she was two years old. He has been shaving for almost half of his life. Seven. Years. In that time, Team Tuesday has grown to a team of 70(!) people, and raised over a quarter of a million dollars. It’s kids helping kids. (and moms and dads helping kids too!) And it’s incredible.

Here’s the direct link to Spencer’s fundraising page – there’s still a week to go before shave day, and he’s a little more than half way towards his goal. Together we can make a difference.

Here’s a little retrospective, starting with 2010

Knights of the Bald Table

denver colorado portrait st baldricks

We’re heading into the final stretch leading up to this year’s Denver St Baldrick’s event.. a little less than two weeks until the day that Team Tuesday ‘braves the shave’ at Fado’s. As many of you know, this cause is near and dear to my heart, and it’s pretty special to have witnessed first hand the growth and the impact of Team Tuesday – from their very first participation in St. Baldrick’s in 2010, to now having a team of upwards of 57 amazing people dedicated towards raising money to fund pediatric cancer research.

For the small group pictured above, this year is particularly significant – each of them has been shaving with Team Tuesday since the very beginning; this year they will become ‘knights of the bald table’, an honor bestowed by St Baldrick’s to recognize seven years of service. Seven. Years. For many of them, that’s more than half their lives! I am blown away by each of them. Their perseverance. Their courage. Their selflessness.
