Our Events

Fighting back, step by step. Our events are centered around fundraising, awareness, and the UBC Community!

Cuts for Cancer

UBC’s Cuts for Cancer is an annual event in which students and the UBC community are given the unique opportunity to help those in the fight against cancer. Hair donations of 10″ or longer will be transformed into wigs for children who suffer from long-term medical hair loss, with monetary donations supporting the Wigs 4 Kids program at BC Children’s Hospital.
