[Photo Story]: Volunteers Donate Their Hair On Stage During THON 2017

Every year, volunteers donate their hair on stage #FTK. Cutting all your hair off can be an emotional experience by itself — add thousands of other student volunteers and THON children to the mix and you have a perfect recipe for a life-changing experience. We compiled some photo evidence for all those who couldn’t be in the BJC to witness it:
