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.
