The Hair Cut-A-Thon is a fundraiser and community awareness event. CCFSC takes the opportunity to allow the community to show their support of children with cancer by having them shave their head or get a hair-cut and style.
Children with cancer shave the heads of firefighters and anyone else wishing to have their heads shaved while stylists cut and style the hair of those that would not like a shaved head but would still like to show their support.
In addition, we collect 12” hair donations to send to Wigs for Kids, an organization dedicated to providing wigs for children with cancer. Throughout the years, CCFSC has collected more than 100 12” hair donations with the support of the community. A special thank you to Michael Cook, a Ft. Irwin Firefighter, that planted the seed for this event and fundraiser by calling Childhood Cancer Foundation of Southern California in 2005 and offering to have his head shaved by a child with cancer to show his support of all those fighting this disease.
