sHAIRing Is Caring

On the evening of Friday, June 2nd, 2017 My niece Emma and I will be participating at the Relay For Life at Nepean Sportsplex. However, we will not be doing laps. Instead, I will have my head shaved and Emma will cut her hair in support of people everywhere thriving and surviving from Cancer. Our long long ponytails will be donated to Beautiful Lengths to transform them into free, real-hair wigs for women with cancer. In addition, the event will be again dedicated to Danielle's Ottawa Fire Services co-worker at Communications, Kimberly Mountain, whose life is forever changed by cancer.

She and I made our début at Relay for Life Kanata in June of 2014. We raised some much needed dollars, raised awareness and raised a bit of a raucous when a group of 4 of us cut and/or shaved our heads. Well 3 years and beautiful lengths of hair later we are planning our return.


THE MORE THE MERRIER! If you'd like to join our team on the evening of Friday, June 2nd we will have hairdressers on site to help with additional cuts. Please advise the Canadian Cancer Society Ottawa Staff if you'd like to register to donate your hair and/or shave your head.

We will go the distance at Relay For Life, but we need your support to get us there. Please give generously.

Thank you/Merci
