Worlds Greatest Shave for a Cure 2006

Organiser of the Worlds Greatest Shave for a Cure, Cathy Mooney, says this years event was a huge success, with thousands raised throughout the region for the Leukaemia Foundation.

While the final figure is not yet known, Cathy says there were more people willing to shave and colour their hair this year and shes hoping the dollars reflect that.

People just walking by decided on the spot to help out and got up and shaved their heads, which was very inspiring, Cathy said. I heard of one hairdresser who shaved his head in solidarity with a friend with cancer who had lost all her hair, and stories like that give you goosebumps. Were lucky to live in a community that has such a generous heart.
