In 2006 while I was serving on the BC Children's Hospital's Board of Governors, my sons and I visited the Oncology ward. We left together inspired to do something for the kids and collectively as a family. We decided that we would grow our hair, shave our heads and raise funds to support CMN, which we did on stage at our RE/MAX Western Canada Conference in Feb of 2009.
When the event took place, several colleagues and friends spontaneously joined us in getting shaved. I had never had particularly long hair before that, but I liked it! More recently in the fall of 2019 I decided I wanted to grow my hair long again! It wasn't with the intention of shaving it this time, but over time friends kept asking, "when are you going to shave it Ron?".
Inspired by good friends and fellow CMN supporters Bruce Johnson and Leo Bruneau, I had an idea. To quote our co-founder Dave Liniger, "One log makes a lousy fire!" I Googled and found the world record for simultaneous head shaves was set in 2016 by 329 Calgary Firefighters. I thought to myself, we can beat that!
So please join us in 2024 RE/MAX colleagues, staff and friends as a fellow shavee in smashing the current Guinness World Record for simultaneous head shaves! Our target is 400 plus and furthermore, if each Shavee personally raises a minimum of $2,500 we will raise more than $1 Million Dollars for CMN Hospitals!
