Elgin Park students cut it close for a cancer fundraiser last month.

A group of students snipped away their long locks for the Elgin Cancer Youth Society Club’s hair donation event June 14.

Held at the school’s lunch break, the event was a success, said exiting club president Annie Kim.

“I was surprised to get so many volunteers to help out and donate their hair,” she said.

The hair will be made into wigs and then donated to young cancer patients who need them.
