Game Hair Havoc is an online fundraising campaign encouraging players and teams to style their Game Hair in an effort to raise awareness and funds for families affected by cancer.
HEADstrong made history in 2019 together through Game Hair Havoc. A monumental campaign, focused on the empowerment of athletes. Driven by people like you, we created a viral social media call to action which engaged over 16,000,000 participants in more than 35 countries across the world. The campaign raised over $176,000 and generated more than 94,000,000 profile views. It also allowed us to achieve the largest social media audience among cancer charities in the US!
Game Hair Havoc has officially begun and runs from February 17th 2020 - March 31st 2020. Watch the video clip about the campaign and learn more about our campaign leader Steph Finley below.
In March of 2018 Stephanie Finley was diagnosed with Chordoma, a rare cancer that occurs in the bones of the skull base and spine. Chordoma occurs in 1/1,000,000 people with cancer. Over the past 15 months Stephanie has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to minimize her tumors. She and her family began working closely with the HEADstrong Foundation upon her diagnosis and together created Game Hair Havoc to make a difference.
