The Shave for the Brave is a series of school, office and team events. It is Young Adult Cancer Canada's (YACC) biggest fundraiser and provides funds for all of the support programs we provide. There are also large symbolic and emotional components to any Shave event. Donating your hair for wigs or shaving your head bald is a big sacrifice and those who participate have a lot invested in the activity.
Some do it to support a loved one dealing with cancer, to remember someone they lost to cancer, or simply to help support the cause. By participating in larger Shaves, people get to show the world that they care. The very personal action, combined with a public setting, definitely makes for a unique and unforgettable experience!
The past two years Xtreme Hockey has supported the Shave for the Brave and raised over $6500. We would like to extend a challenge to all of our players, coaches and parents! Xtreme is supportive of hosting a Shave again this year but needs a volunteer to take it on. If you are willing to volunteer or would like more information you can contact Dawn Bishop, at 700-1976 firstname.lastname@example.org .
