Competing for Cancer
Hey guys it's Tiahna here, I'm part of the team here at Supplements.co.nz. I've decided to do this crazy thing for an amazing cause. Shave for a Cure is Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand's signature fundraising event. Every year thousands of individuals, schools and businesses across the country whip out the clippers and shave their locks in a bid to help the 6 Kiwis a day diagnosed with a blood cancer or related condition. LBC receives no government funding.
I, like many others, have had friends and family who have been affected by cancer. Recently losing my aunt to a 6 year battle it has given me that push I needed to finally take the leap and do it. I am frequently asked why not run for cancer? Why shave? For me it is a sign of respect, a tribute to those who don’t have a choice. For those strong souls who fight for their lives!
My main goal is $5000.
I have smaller goals $1500 and I will cut my pony tail off and donate it.
$2000 I will shave a triangle from one side of my head.
$3000 I will shave triangles from both sides of my head.
And of course the big goal of $5000 when it is reached, I will be shaving my head completely.
My amazing bosses at Supplements.co.nz have decided that for every tub or bag of Mammoth branded supplements sold, they will donate $1 to the cancer foundation. In return I have permitted them to do the honors of shaving my head in store at Mount Wellington on the 30th of November!
This is something I have always wanted to do but finally got the push to make a difference!
Many thanks for your support.
