American Cancer Fund Participates in No-Shave November!
Participants of No-Shave November have always been willing to ditch their razors and, more recently, donate to cancer fighting foundations. From a few facebook followers willing to donate their hard-earned money to thousands of donors championing against cancer, No-Shave November has become a nationwide celebration. Every November for the past ten years, No-Shavers have donated the cost of grooming (from a few dollars on razors to $100 on a salon visit) and helped non-profit organizations raise over $10 million to date. While this family run, web-based organization has grown exponentially since 2009, No-Shave November’s goal has not changed. We promise to keep raising money for cancer prevention, education, and research and to let that hair grow in the process!
We want every participant to embrace their hair for the many cancer patients that lose theirs due to vigorous treatments. We believe that together, anything is possible, and we’ll get closer to eradicating cancer one whisker at a time!
No-Shave November has been a tradition for many years, but in 2009 the Chicago-based Hill family decided to reinvent the activity to raise money for charity. This project held special meaning to the eight Hill children after their father, Matthew Hill, passed away from colon cancer in November 2007.
