The World's Greatest Shave will celebrate its 22nd anniversary in 2020 making it one of Australia's most longest-running and celebrated fundraising events. The World's Greatest Shave is run by the Leukemia Foundation.

The event involves people shaving, colouring or cutting their hair to raise money to go toward blood cancer research and to support leukemia patients. The Leukemia Foundation is aiming to raise $16.5 million in 2020 through the World's Greatest Shave to help the more than 110,000 Australians who are currently living with blood cancer.

The World's Greatest Shave is an important fundraising event because more Australians of all ages are being diagnosed with blood cancer every day. If nothing is done to stop the rise in people being diagnosed with blood cancer, it is estimated that over 275,000 Australians will be living with the disease by 2035.

The Leukemia Foundation has a goal to lead the charge in blood cancer research so that there will be zero lives lost to blood cancer by 2035. By taking part in the Word's Greatest Shave, you will be helping the Leukemia Foundation get closer to their goal.
