Saving by Shaving 6
On April 3rd, 2019 over 1,000 teammates, family and friends shaved their heads and cut their hair to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. Granite Telecommunications donated $6.5 Million to fund pediatric cancer research in our 6th Annual ‘Saving by Shaving’ event. We were joined by the Boston Children Hospitals team, sports legends, current players, community leaders and celebrities.
For each person who shaves their head or donates at least 8 inches of their hair (going to 'Hair We Share'), Granite donated $2,500, which was matched dollar for dollar by the Hale family, for a total of $5,000 per head to fund pediatric cancer research at Boston Children’s Hospital.
Plus, a donation of $100 was made for every "chemo cap" (a hat for cancer patients who’ve lost hair due to chemotherapy) created by the Granite Fiber Art's team. This year the team handcrafted 451 hats for children and adults.
