Students to Host ‘Cuts for Cancer’ Event

Posted on April 4, 2013.

HPU High Point University Cuts for CancerHIGH POINT, N.C., April 4, 2013 – High Point University students, faculty and staff will chop off their hair for a good cause at the 3rd annual “Cuts for Cancer” event on HPU’s campus at 5:30 p.m., on April 22 in Hayworth Park. The event is free and open to the public.

“Cuts for Cancer” allows anyone to donate at least eight inches of their hair to be made into wigs for cancer patients that otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford it.

“When you hear those scissors slicing through your hair and that first pony tail is cut off, your head becomes lighter and at that moment, you understand you are making a difference that can be seen,” says organizer Emily Dunn, who donated her hair at the event last year. “You’re directly changing one cancer patient’s life in a way that cannot be explained.

Dunn says more than a dozen students have signed up so far, and she hopes more will join in. The event is open to the public.

“Hair grows back,” says Dunn. “Donating your hair to someone is the greatest and most selfless gift.”
