It wouldn’t be THON season without hundreds of students walking around campus with shaved heads. The plethora of scalps is not a new fashion trend, but rather part of the second annual fundraiser called “No Hair, Don’t Care.”
Supporters will be able to have their head shaved from 3-7 p.m. at Evolve Studio (326 West Beaver Avenue) for $10, with all proceeds going to THON. The organization that has the most people shave their heads will receive a $100 donation. The big prize is a “No Hair, Don’t Care” headband, which basketball coach Patrick Chambers sported nicely last year in the picture above.
PJ Tatano started the fundraiser last year as a freshman and is a part of the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences THON efforts.
“It’s much more about supporting the kids than raising money to me,” he said last year. “As important as it is to help raise the THON total, I think this has the opportunity to provide great emotional support for victims of pediatric cancer.”
James Franklin is expected to show up at around 5 p.m., although it will probably be more for the selfies than the haircut.
