For the last couple of years (2004, 2005) BCSB members have got together to raise money for the Balding for Dollars event. The money raised goes towards helping children who are undergoing treatment for cancer or blood disorders. In 2004, we raised just over $5,000 and in 2005 we exceeded the $12,000 mark. A large portion of the money raised came from the Riders Clinic organised by Dat and friends as well the the Daytona party organised by Bernie.
You can contribute in two ways:
1. be a shaver and get sponsored, or
2. sponsor a shaver.
(you can also attend Bernie bash and contribute there as well)
What is a shaver? Well he/she is brave enough to get his/her head shaved on the day of the event, having tried to get as many people to sponsor him/her for this amazing self-less feat! If I am not mistaken we might have a couple of ladies who will be stepping up for a shave this year.
You can get more info about the event (this year it will on Sat. April 22 2006) by going here. If you are going to raise money then you need a pedge form.
The gallery has some pictures of the people who participated last year. Including a couple of great shots of Cody (aka Dafnip), who unfortunately is no longer with us. Both Cody and Julia were great supporters of this event and it is only befitting that we honour their memory this year.
Again I will try and secure some goodies for the brave shavers as an added incentive for their participation.
On the day of the event, we will get togther for breakfast (traditionally at the FlyingSwan) and then to BC Chidlren's Hospital for shave and fun. We will be riding of course.
So if you are going to be a shaver then post up!
PM me if you have any questions.
