The Terry Fox Foundation is looking to make cancer research the hottest trend in hairstyling with the Terry Fox Great Canadian Hair ‘Do.’
The event will see participants shave it all off and try their hand at a little bit of waxing, a new colour or something quirky with colourful hair extensions or a wacky wig.
“For me, it’s just hair,” said Donna Louie, 2010 head shaver and administrator for the Terry Fox Foundation’s B.C. and Yukon division. “I asked a friend of mine, in the midst of her cancer journey, how she felt about non-cancer patients shaving their head. She told me it showed her that we were committed to making a difference.”
Energetic and creative people are sought as organizers, volunteers and participants for the event, which can be organized in malls, salons, festivals, parties, schools, parks or offices. It can also be done as an individual, a release states.
“Organizing an event is not only fun and rewarding, but made easy with the help of the Terry Fox Foundation staff who are always on hand and willing to offer help when needed.”
Funds raised through the foundation impact research programs into a wide variety of cancers, such as breast, prostate, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, leukemia and more.
