Last fall, Regis Corporation—consisting of the brands Supercuts, SmartStyle, MasterCuts, and Regis Salons— hosted its annual Clip for the Cure campaign to raise money for breast cancer research. The campaign included a haircutting event with stylists from over 7,000 corporate salons who gave more than 225,000 haircuts to guests, with a portion of the proceeds going to The Regis Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.
At the end of the campaign, Regis Corporation for Breast Cancer Research donated $400,000 to Mayo Clinic. The proceeds will support the development of endoxifen, a drug to treat women with breast cancer who are resistant to standard hormonal-based therapies.
“Regis has a history of partnering with Mayo Clinic and we proudly support their groundbreaking work in breast cancer research,” said Dan Hanrahan, CEO and president of Regis Corporation.
“I am so grateful for Regis’ support,” said Dr. Matthew Goetz, a Mayo Clinic oncologist who is working with the National Cancer Institute to develop the drug. “My colleagues and I are committed to innovative new work like this because our patients deserve the best therapies when facing a life threatening disease such as breast cancer.”
Regis Corporation has supported breast cancer research since 1990, and since then, it has raised over $10 million to fund research at nationally recognized organizations.
