Harold Panabaker Head Shave

On Thursday, April 14, 2016 months of fundraising activity culminates in a massive shave-off at Harold Panabaker School when 36 students, a principal and a father-and-son duo all went under the razor for kids with cancer. Twelve-year-old Ethan Rau was inspired to organize the school shave for Kids Cancer Care, when his grandpa Cliff passed away last June, after a 16-month battle with cancer. To support his son’s fundraising efforts, Andrew Rau agreed to grow a beard last July and refrain from cutting or trimming it until his son raised at least $3,000. The father-son team also agreed that Ethan could shave off his father’s hair and beard in front of the entire school if he met his fundraising goal. This amazing group raised more than $25,000!
