Fourteen shavees raised more than $15,800.
In addition to the shaving, four volunteers were able to cut enough hair to donate to Locks of Locks before being shaved. In addition to Autumn Boyd, Hannah Nelson and Miranda Stegman, all pictured in this post, Justin Herstein donated his hair as well. He is a mechanic/welder at Laramie River Station.

The Laramie River Station event had two special guests. Autumn Boyd and Jake Hicks are ten years old. They shaved their heads in solidarity with their classmate Dallin Gunter. Dallin’s dad, Troy Gunter, is a lab technician at Laramie River Station.
Gunter says this is the second time his son is battling a brain tumor. But he says he can tell the money going into research on childhood cancer is making a difference. His son was first diagnosed with a brain tumor at age seven. Three years later, the testing is good enough to show two different types of cancer, something they wouldn’t have known before. Knowing about the different cancers allows for more appropriate and successful treatment, Gunter says.
