Hair Donation Ottawa

Hair Donation Ottawa (HDO) is an annual fundraising event that supports childhood cancer research at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Together, with our volunteers and supporters, we are proud to announce that have we have raised over $570,000 and donated over 25,000 inches of hair since 2011! We are excited to announce our 9th annual event on Sunday, September 22nd, 2019 from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm at the Algonquin College Salon, Spa and Boutique (1385 Woodroffe Avenue, Building A). Please join us in support of the children and youth in our community!


September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This subject hits all too close to home for the families who rely on CHEO for oncology treatment and the CHEO Research Institute scientists who dedicate every day to finding better ways to care for children faced with cancer.
