Karyn Kalamaras is fronting up for a second head shave.
Ten years ago Karyn sacrificed her locks in the name of charity and she reckons it’s now grown back enough so she can do it again.
Karyn and Lee Fisher are both taking part in Shave for a Cure at Kalano in Katherine.
The Kalano Community Development Program team are taking part in this year’s Greatest Shave with the help of Catholic Care NT on Friday, March 16 between 9am-1pm.
The team and their supporters will be having a mini fun day in the gardens of Catholic Care on First Street in Katherine.
Karyn, who manages the Community Development Program at Kalano, agreed to have her head shaved for Relay for Life 10 years ago.
“There are not many people who have not been touched by cancer in some way,” she said.
Karyn said she was also humbled by the support from Kalano members who have been fixing lawnmowers, building a bar, fixing vehicles and running an opportunity shop at the community to raise money.
“Personally I am hoping to raise $1000 to lose my hair again, and it is really great to see how people have come on board to raise money for such a good cause.”
Meanwhile, students at Charles Darwin University will also be armed with clippers and coloured hairspray to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation’s 20th annual World’s Greatest Shave.
People who opt to lop their locks won’t be disappointed, with VET Hair and Beauty students and lecturers on hand in the Breezeway at Casuarina campus from 9am – 2pm on March 14.
CDU Student Ambassadors won a trophy in the NT Top 3 Education Industry Challenge after raising $1800 in the 2017 World’s Greatest Shave.
