Cuts for Kids
March 14, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The event will be held in a fun carnival-style atmosphere, complete with live music, inflatables, face painting, balloon animals, fresh popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones. Community booths with healthy living information and screenings for blood pressure, body mass index, height and weight, and more will also be available. Attendees who donate eight or more inches of hair can donate their hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths — an initiative that collects hair to create real-hair wigs for women fighting cancer. Hair meant for wig donation must be clean and dry; must be free of dyes, chemicals, and bleaches; must contain no more than 5% gray; and may be shipped or delivered to Midwestern University previously cut and stored in a ponytail. All monies collected from Cuts for Kids benefit the March of Dimes’ March for Babies program. March for Babies is a walking event which supports community programs and research that encourage healthy pregnancies and newborns.
