In Photos: Men and women Brave the Shave for childhood cancer awareness

A lot of men and a couple of women are feeling a lot lighter today, after saying so long to the hair on their heads. They stepped up to “Brave the Shave” on Thursday, Aug. 29, raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Georgia.

Brave the Shave was created as a fundraiser and to celebrate cancer patients and their families during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which starts Sept. 1. Participants were asked to raise $100 or more and donated their time and efforts to shave heads in the lobby of the Children’s Hospital. So far, more than $12,000 has been donated and collected as part of the fundraiser.

The generosity of those who took part means more than you can imagine to these brave children and their families. It means hope, support, and leading-edge treatment options.
