FMH has raised over



for the St. Baldrick's Foundation since 2006, when the company first brought the head-shaving event to Iowa. Every year since then, the event has have grown in attendance, number of shavees, and money raised. Multiple other groups in Iowa have split off from FMH’s original event.

We’re proud to say that the 2019 FMH Annual Head Shaving Event helped to raise over $110,000, ranking it in the top five percent of St. Baldrick’s head-shaving events worldwide.

Through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, FMH is helping to fund childhood cancer research, pediatric hospital support and programs, and scholarships for promising medical students right here in Iowa. The University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital and Blank Children’s Hospital both receive grants from the money raised right here in Iowa through the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
