White Rock rugby star, and national team member, Adam Kleeberger – whose Viking-esque facial hair gained notoriety during Canada’s run at the Rugby World Cup – will shave off his beard next week for charity.

Kleeberger, a Semiahmoo Secondary alum who played junior rugby with the Bayside Sharks, will have his beard shorn Oct. 17 in Victoria – and CBC comedian Rick Mercer will be the one wielding the razor.

Mercer will shave off Kleeberger’s beard as part of an upcoming episode of The Rick Mercer Report. The event will also raise money for two charities. In Canada, Kleeberger is asking for donation to the Movember cause (www.movember.com), which aims to raise funds for cancer research.

And citing the warm hospitality he received during the World Cup in New Zealand, Kleeberger is also seeking donations to help the Christchurch Earthquake Relief Fun via the website, via http://donate.rugbycanada.ca/e/Shear_the_Beard
