Shave & Buzz 2023 ...
expands to include UNC!

Shave & Buzz is an annual fundraising event hosted by the Shave & Buzz Club at Duke. New this year is the collaboration with the PIKE fraternity at the University of North Carolina. This "cooperative and friendly competition" will spark greater awareness of and funds for adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients at both the Duke and UNC medical centers.

The PIKE fraternity at Duke originated the first Shave & Buzz in 2016 to support two of their fellow members, Mark Schreiber and Bobby Menges, who were diagnosed with cancer within a month of one another. 100% of the funds raised at Shave & Buzz have supported programs and services for AYA cancer patients and survivors at the Duke University Medical Center, specifically fertility preservation and peer-to-peer support.

More about Shave/Buzz

"This was Bobby's favorite day of the year, and

it is the best event I've ever been to at Duke" -Ryan

The Annual "Shave for Shreiber/Buzz for Bobby" (S4S/B4B) PIKE fundraisers at Duke have involved many in the Duke and greater Durham communities.  Originally begun to support their fraternity brothers, Mark Shreiber and Bobby Menges, who were simultaneously undergoing cancer treatment, PIKE has continued the tradition and it continues to grow.  Funds support AYA programs and services for adolescents and young adults at the Duke University Medical Center.

"I remember talking to Bobby about his dreams for the future of this event. He spoke about how he hoped that the legacy of this fundraiser would carry on past his graduation from Duke, until people didn’t have any idea who he or Schreiber were. Unfortunately, we lost our good friend Bobby this past fall to his battle with cancer. However, his legacy and the lives he touched will be sure to live on in strength."  -Michael, 2018
