THE 2012 World's Greatest Shave fundraiser is being held between 15 - 17 March to raise some much needed funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie has signed up to be part of the two local events on Thursday 15th March at the Kawana Shoppingworld and Currimundi Marketplace.
This is the third year that Mr Bleijie will colour his hair in aid of charity.
"The Leukaemia Foundation provides invaluable support for patients and families living with leukaemia, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders," Mr Bleijie said.
"The Foundation does a great job in assisting sufferers and their families.
"Every hour of every day, at least one person in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
"Every two hours, someone loses their life to a blood cancer.
"The Foundation also provides emotional support, transport and accommodation costs to and from treatment and contributes to medical research in order to find a cure.
"Please feel free to come along to one of the local events and lend some support or better still shave or colour your hair," Mr Bleijie said.
Details of the two registered local events are as follows:
10:00am - 12:00pm
