Arlington’s police, firefighters and sheriff are encouraging residents to “be brave and shave” to raise money for childhood cancer research.

On Sunday, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., dozens of people will get their locks sheared off at Westover Library (1644 North McKinley Road) for a good cause. The proceeds will benefit the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s National Medical Center.

The event is being held at the same time another sponsored by Montgomery County’s police and firefighters.

Arlington police held a bake sale two weeks go to raise money the event.

  • Set the controls

    A noble cause, but why the shaving?

    • Lou

      Yes, and the what part, too.

  • TGEoA

    Whats with all the hair stuff? Brave n Shave, National Mustache month?

    When is bi-annual beaver wax day?

  • Perhaps

    Perhaps it could be because you often lose your hair when undergoing cancer treatment, and creating the same look as those suffering from cancer often is a way of showing support.
