Kim Burden, Bill McKinney and Joan LeMoine will be shaving their heads in the Parksville Thrifty’s parking lot this Thursday, Sept. 29 to raise money for the Cops for Cancer, Tour de Rock ride.
The local supporters of the Vancouver Island wide fundraising event committed to their own small sacrifice if they raised over $1,000. More than a week ahead of time LeMoine was approaching $2,000 and didn’t show any signs of slowing down.
LeMoine laughed off questions about the choice, “It’s just hair, it’ll grow back.” She said when the idea came up she said thought, “I’m just a little old lady, but maybe I can help some kids.”
The shaving will take place at Thrifty Foods in Parksville this Thursday at 3 p.m. Donations are still being accepted through the participants, the Canadian Cancer Society or www.tourderock.ca.
