World’s Greatest Shave

Sign up to our biggest fundraiser of the year and help support the work of the Leukaemia Foundation.

Since its inception, World’s Greatest Shave has become one of the nation’s biggest and most popular fundraising events involving up to 40,000 Queenslanders each year pledging to shave or colour their hair to raise funds for people with all types of blood cancers including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.


The Leukaemia Foundation’s largest annual fundraising campaign has been running since 1998. Over the past 18 years up to 2016, over $193 million has been raised nationally. In 2016 we raised over $17.7 million nationally. In 2017 we are aiming to exceed this result to provide even more free practical and emotional support for patients and their families.

If you have already signed up for 2017, we would love to hear your story to help us spread the word about World’s Greatest Shave. Tell us your story »
