Pink In The City

"Pink In The City is a student created charity that supports the Breast Cancer Clinic at our MUHC Hospital and gives 100% of what is raised."


Every year PINK CHAMPIONS shave their heads or cut their hair, raise awareness, and money in support of people suffering from cancer. 

All money raised goes to the Breast Cancer Clinic at our MUHC to support new research to create a liquid biopsy that will revolutionize diagnosis and care. 

Avon Canada has matched every dollar raised during this year's campaign!

$76 000 RAISED 

The next SWLSB RAISE CRAZE will take place between March 15 & May 15, 2024. 


PINK CHAMPIONS are the brave students and community members who are willing to cut and donate at least 8cm of their hair or shave their heads.

A PINK CHAMPION can be any age. They set their fundraising goals and our ASL teams work to support them.

There are 3 ways to raise awareness and money for our MUHC breast cancer clinic.

A survivor and 'Pink Ambassador' is also making their time available to students and each school to help raise awareness by sharing their journey and story.

Student Leaders create an engaging head shaving and fundraising experience at the MUHC in October for schools throughout the SWLSB.

Dr. Sarkis Meterissian, surgical oncologist and the Director of the Breast Cancer Clinic has pledged to raise $100,000 for the Breast Cancer Clinic. 

All of the donations will benefit the Breast Clinic’s Wellness Program at the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC), which offers every breast cancer patient free access to services —from nutrition advice to counselling— to return to happy, healthy lives following treatment. If he meets or surpasses his fundraising goal, Dr. Meterissian will shave his head in October!

Marilena Thank you

You always have the opportunity and power to change the world if you are listening effectively and willing to act.

Marilena is cutting and donating her hair with Pink In The City because one of her students at St. Agathe Academy asked her if she would donate her hair to help make a wig for his mom who will be going through breast cancer treatment.

Marilena is a student leadership alumni who answered this call in an incredible way.

Over $9000 raised!! Thank you!
