On May 22nd, Shorewood High School held its annual Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc. (MACC) Fund "Buzz Cuts for Cancer" event to raise awareness of the need for ongoing childhood cancer research.
Fifteen SHS students—11 of whom were female—and SHS principal Tim Kenney agreed to literally "make a change" by collecting donations from friends, family, and businesses in exchange for "buzzing" their hair off. It was incredible to see these high school students have so much drive to raise money and the courage to fulfill their buzz cuts for such a noble cause.
This is the tenth year Shorewood has participated in Buzz Cuts, and while this year‘s event raised over $6,800 from 124 donors, the combined total raised for the MACC Fund over the past ten years is over $100,000, which is quite an accomplishment.
By providing funding for research, the MACC Fund’s goal is to find a cure for childhood cancer and related blood disorders. Thank you to all the SHS participants, organizers, and to those who donated to support cancer research. Though the event is over, Buzz Cuts is still accepting donations for the MACC fund.
