Last year's event

2020 was a challenging year for all of us and against all odds, we were delighted to be able to hold the event.  

Together our CEOs and business leaders achieved the amazing $1m fundraising milestone, funding the equivalent of 10 senior researchers working in our Labs.

CEO Dare To Cure hair cut dare

"Having 5-year-old Nixon shave my head with a dangerously sharp razor was nothing compared to what these kids face! I encourage other leaders to get involved in this fantastic event."

- Jaron Mitchell, CEO & Co-Founder, 4 Pines
