The hometown heroes of the Genoa Police Department are raising money for cancer awareness by participating in No-Shave November! Each officer will be trying to “bail” themselves out by raising $300 towards their $2500 team goal.
You can help support them and help cancer research by going to their team page at https://no-shave.org/team/genoapd.
Follow the event on Facebook for updated pictures and donation totals! Let them know that you gave by commenting on the event page and your name will be entered to win a $50 Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce gift card!
Let it Grow and Join the Fight Against Cancer!
Each day, 22,000 people die from cancer worldwide (WHO). There’s a good chance that someone you know and love will be affected by this disease. Nearly half of cancer diagnoses and deaths are preventable.
No-Shave November‘s mission is to not only raise funds for cancer research and treatment but to educate the population about preventative measures. For over six years, participants around the globe have put down their razors and foregone their hair appointments to join the fight against cancer. The No-Shave November campaign has successfully raised over $3.5 million dollars to combat this disease.
Every dollar raised brings us one step closer in our efforts to fund cancer research and education, help prevent the disease, and aid those fighting the battle. Each whisker grown allows us to embrace our hair, which many cancer patients lose during treatment.
