Some Lake Catholic Cougars shed their manes Thursday at Blondie Hair Design to help children with cancer.
The hair will be donated to Locks of Love, which uses the hair to make wigs for sick children who cannot afford them.
Annaliesa Stebal, Casey Kotoch and Nicole Saraniti are just the most recent students to grow out their hair so they can donate it.
Even Lake Catholic Principal Robert Kumazec grew a ponytail so he could give his hair.
The Lake Catholic community was spurred to action in part because of two 8-year-old girls.
Sara Hudson and Erin Potter were battling T-cell lymphoma and leukemia, respectively. Sara is the daughter of Lake Catholic biology teacher Scott Hudson and Erin is related to several Lake Catholic staff and faculty members, including Matthew Moran, Peter Moran and John Gibbons.
Those who wish to follow Erin's progress can do so on her Caring Bridge site.
Sadly, Sara passed away earlier this year.
