Every February, thousands of Albertans put their locks on the line to help children with life-threatening illnesses, and their families. It's called the Hair Massacure, and this year, ATB is proud to support events in Red Deer and Edmonton with $11,500 in donations.

At the Hair Massacure, volunteer hair stylists shave the heads of participants who want to show support for young cancer patients and survivors. Bright pink hairdos, clothing, and accessories are a trademark of the event.

Participants fundraise for their shave, and since the first shave in 2003, over $6 million has been raised for sick kids in Alberta. The shaved hair is collected, cleaned, and made into wigs for local children.

Red Deer

On Friday, February 8, the Red Deer Hair Massacure will take over the Parkland Mall from 11am to 7pm. 11 ATB volunteers will be on hand to help take donations, register participants, and count pledges.
