For the month of November, the Be Healthy Burleson Initiative promoted “No Shave November” as a way to raise cancer awareness. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.
Be Healthy Burleson created “No Shave November” t-shirts to promote the cause. They encouraged the community to donate the money they usually spend on shaving and grooming for a month and buy a Be Healthy No Shave November t-shirt to support cancer prevention and aid for those fighting the battle! The funds raised from t-shirt sales went directly to support local cancer patients through the Careity Foundation.
The Careity foundation is a local nonprofit who aid cancer patients in Burleson. For more information about the Careity Foundation, please visit: http://www.careity.org/
By the end of the month, we raised $1,065! Thank you to everyone who participated!
