A young man lost his locks for his tenth time at Shave for the Brave at the Avalon Mall on Saturday.
Gonzaga High student, Christian Legge, has attended every Shave for the Brave for the past decade.
“I started shaving my head when I was about 5 or 6 because I wanted to support my great grandmother who was diagnosed with cancer that year,” he says. “Since then it’s become a tradition of mine.”
This year marks the twelfth annual Shave for the Brave since it began back in 2005. The event sees people from all walks of life come out to shave their heads and donate money to help young adults with cancer.
Organizer and Executive Director of Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC), Geoff Eaton, says Legge is a major part of the event.
Anybody whose worked at YACC knows Christian,” Eaton says. “It’s been a major transformation since the first Shave for the Brave and Christian has been a huge part of that.”
Legge, now 16, has raised more than $70,000 to support young adults as they move through and beyond cancer.
“I’m going to keep doing this and doing as much as I can to help,” Legge says.
