I would like to take a moment to thank all residents who took the time to show their support either through donation or otherwise for the Hair Donation Ottawa event this past weekend, which helped to raise funds for cancer research.
With your generous support, I was able to contribute $1050 to the cause. We came together to support a fantastic cause and as you can see from our smiling faces, it was an enjoyable event for all.
As donations are still coming in, full numbers will not be available until the end of May; however as of April 30th, there were 236 participants that helped to raise $108,000, collecting over 2,210” of hair.
I would like to thank the Hair Donation Ottawa team, in particular, Helene Hutchings and Perry Pavlovic, for all of their hard work toward the success of this great campaign as well as Deputy Mayor, Mark Taylor for taking the time to join the event in shaving my head.
I would also like to provide a special thanks to all of the Stittsville families and kids who participated in the day, bravely donating their hair in order to contribute to such a worthwhile cause. Your incredible contributions help to ensure that cancer research continues to improve every day. Thank you.
