The cutting of her long hair was done to promote the upcoming St. Baldrick’s Pediatric Cancer Research Fund Raiser, which the local Kiwanis Club has sponsored for the last three years.

Besides this main event, which this year will be held at McHenry County College’s conference center, Crystal Lake South High School’s Key Club sponsors a similar fund raiser where students and faculty have their heads shaved to benefit the charity.

The Ollerenshaw event was held in conjunction with one of the service club’s two monthly meetings, this time at McHenry County College,.  Ollerenshaw he teaches there.

Plastic was placed under the area where Crystal Lake Clip Joynt Salon’s Allison Vi set up her equipment.

Ollerenshaw discussed the relatives and friends who had fought various forms of cancer, some winning and some losing that battle.
