Augusta, GA -
At Goshen Elementary School, students raised money to help cancer patients at GRU, and some teachers joined the cause by cutting off their hair.
At the beginning of the year students chose to cancer patients as their service project, and raised a total of $600. Second grade teacher Leah Cleveland cut off 12 inches of her hair.
Other teachers got in on the action. One teacher shaved her head into a mohawk to support her son who battled cancer and also has a mohawk.
"Some of the children were like no, you’re not going to cut your hair, you’re not going to cut your hair, we are not bringing any money, and I had to tell them no we want the money, it’s for the children, it’s for the families, it’s to help them eat, to sleep, it’s to help get them here, some of them come all across country to get to GRU," said Leah Cleveland.
The money goes to helping patients in the hospital with services and buying toys for children with cancer.
