Hair Donation Ottawa...a Cancer Research Fundraiser.
Cutting edge adult and childhood cancer research at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute and The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute.
Hair Donation Ottawa is an annual, non-profit, cancer research fundraiser where people register on-line, raise pledges for donating their hair and/or shaving their heads & receive a wash, cut and style or shave.
Participating hair stylists from various Ottawa & area salons, as well as teaching staff and students from the Algonquin College Hair Stylist program, volunteer their time and talent for this cause.
Hair Donation Ottawa was founded in 2011 by Helene Hutchings, who was diagnosed and successfully treated for cancer at The Ottawa Hospital in 2010.
The event has raised over $370,000 since 2011 and donated over 25,000 inches of hair.
The event runs each April during Cancer Awareness Month.
