Clovis North: fighting cancer by cutting hair
Clovis, Calif (Fox26) —
Clippers were buzzing and hair was falling at Clovis North High School Thursday, but all of the hair loss was for a very good cause.
Clovis North hosted its annual St. Baldrick's event to benefit childhood cancer.
Several students and staff collected sponsors and then had their long hair cut or totally shaved, then donated.
It looked like all fun and games and spirits were high, but cancer survivor’s like Savannah Gomes called it a really moving display of love and support that really does make a difference for kids battling cancer.
"Physical appearances mean something in high school,” Gomes explained, “so to have someone, or a lot of kids really, to do that, willing to stand out with you, is awesome."
Organizers say they hope to raise ten-thousand dollars this year and lots of hair.
