Brave. It’s a word that describes those who make personal sacrifices to help others.
In 2016, it’s a word that belongs to the women and girls who have cut or shaved their hair to fight childhood cancer.
This year, more than 30 women and girls shaved their heads in Basin Electric’s Brave the Shave campaign, the region’s largest childhood cancer fundraiser on a mission to help kids with cancer. Nine cut and donated their hair.
Meet a few of the extraordinary ladies who Braved the Shave during the campaign’s March 11 flagship event at the Missouri Valley Family YMCA in Bismarck, ND, and read about why they got involved.
In total, 399 participants signed up to go bald, donate their hair, or volunteer at the various events. The campaign has raised more than $300,000 and money is still coming in. You can still donate to Brave the Shave.
