The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), in co-operation with the Canadian Cancer Society and Georgian College’s Orillia Campus, kicked off Cops for Cancer on Feb. 18.

In support of the initiative and a family member currently undergoing cancer treatment, second-year Community and Justice Services student Chris Fraser shaved his head and a 10-inch beard. (Photos show Chris before and after the haircut and shave.)

To raise funds for cancer, participants will collect pledges from co-workers, friends, family and community members from now until noon on Wednesday, March 25, when the clippers come out at the Orillia Campus.

Funds will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society Simcoe-Muskoka Community Office.

All staff, students and members of the public are welcome to participate.
