2020 Cuts for Cancer

February 06, 2020
By Cristina Mares, Director of Communications

This year is the 7th Annual Cuts for Cancer on Friday, February 21, 2020

In the past six years, a total of 590 ponytails have been donated from the Savio community. The school also raises funds to be donated each year and the grand total that the school has donated to St Jude's Research Hospital is well over $10,000. 

Considering donating your hair? 

The ponytails donated need to be 8" in length. Please prayerfully consider participating if you are able to. We have professional stylists that volunteer their time to participate in this amazing event to cut your hair, or you can have your own stylist cut it and bring it to donate in a Ziploc bag. Everyone that cuts their hair will receive a free shirt.

The ponytails are donated to be made into real hair wigs for children who have lost their hair to cancer, and other illnesses. T-shirts will be for sale, to help support the event. All proceeds from the shirts are donated to St Jude's Children's Hospital. 

Will you donate your ponytail? Fill out the Pledge Permission Form at the button or find the forms on the bulletin board by the gym! Please turn in your pledges to the Front Office by February 13th!
