Public Service Credit Union About This Event
430 Empire Ave. St. John's, NL
July 13, 2018 - 1 p.m.
This year the Public Service Credit Union has teamed up with EasternEdge and Reddy Kilowatt Credit Union to make this the best Shave for the Brave event yet! We want to give a big shout out to George Murphy and Sean Kilpatrick who have BRAVELY volunteered to participate in this year's event. Both George and Sean will be stepping into the barbershop on July 13 at the Public Service Credit Union.
PSCU has been a proud supporter of YACC and has hosted Shave events for the past three years and have been a dedicated sponsor since 2014. With the help of their members, employees and large network, including EasternEdge and Reddy Kilowatt Credit Unions, they have raised in excess of sixty-nine thousand dollars through YACC sponsorships and Shave initiatives for the many worthwhile programs offered by YACC.
The Shave for the Brave is a series of Community, School, Office, and Solo Shave events held every year. It is Young Adult Cancer Canada's (YACC) biggest fundraiser and provides funds for all of the support programs YACC provides.
There are also large symbolic and emotional components to any Shave event. Donating your hair for wigs or shaving your head bald is a big sacrifice and those who participate have a lot invested in the activity. Some do it to support a loved one dealing with cancer, to remember someone they lost to cancer, or simply to help support the cause. By participating in larger Shaves, people get to show the world that they care. The very personal action, combined with a public setting, makes for a unique and unforgettable experience!
Becoming bald or wearing a bright yellow Shave for the Brave toque are also very physical ways participants support the brave young adults dealing with cancer in Canada.
