So, this is what comes of a couple guys trying to goad each other online. One says he'd shave his head if another will, too. The other says okay, but only if there's some sort of charity involved since he won't do it "just because." After some discussion, Komen is named the benefactor (there seems to be a widespread interest in breasts among this particular group of friends), a date is set for the shearing, and fundraising commences, all spawned at the Training Anarchy forum.
This (perhaps first of many?) fund is in memory of one participant's friend's mother, Robin Bass Spangler, who passed away due to breast cancer.
The festivities will be held on Saturday, June 13, with plenty of pictures posted here soon after from all (two or three) participants. So far, it's just Ben and Jay, but that could change.
Check back often for updates regarding special activities (read: shaved designs, who gets to hold the clippers, maybe some piecemeal waxing, etc) and associated fundraising benchmarks.
Final pictures posted!
Thanks again to everyone who donated and/or just spread the word. The photo albums here hold just a sample of all the pictures taken (no need to be redundant). I actually like the look and feel so far, so I may keep it. Good for my haircut budget, bad for any future fundraisers like this, but I'll figure something out.
