During the 21st Annual Trout Festival in Makkovik, 12 people shaved their heads for cancer.
Liz Evans-Mitchell is a resident of Makkovik.
Herself and a friend, Sheila, decided to shave their heads, along with their sons Paul & Brandon.
But during the Trout Fest supper, a few more people also decided to do it.
Among the 12 were men, women and young teens.
As of right now, the unofficial amount of money raised is $1200.
Proceeds will go to the Canadian Cancer Society for Cancer Research.
Evans-Mitchell says her daughter Jill went table to table with pledge forms during the supper.
Right now, herself and Cathy Ford, who also shaved her head, are now planning a Relay for Life walk for Makkovik.
She hopes to have the Relay sometime in September.
She spoke very emotionally about the cause.
Saying ‘it was a very humbling experience…you never know, the money we raised could help find a cure for the damn disease’.
Evans-Mitchell is taking donations until Friday, if you would like to donate, contact her by phone or email.
