Members of the Beckley Police Department will be participating for the first time in “No Shave November.” The rules of No Shave November are simple; put down your razor and donate your monthly hair maintenance expenses to the “Cause.” This is a unique way to grow cancer awareness in our community.
For this first year we have chosen to partner with WV Kids “Cancer Crusaders” https://www.wvkidscc.org/
WV Kids Cancer Crusaders is a community of children, families, individuals, organizations, medical professionals and caregivers with interest in creating awareness, advocating, and providing support and resources for all those West Virginians affected by young adult, adolescence and childhood cancer.
The goal of No Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose and to raise money for a great organization.
How it works, After a $25.00 donation to WV Kids Cancer Crusaders, members of the Beckley Police Department will be allowed to start letting their beards grow beginning Thursday November 1st, and will be back to normal on Thursday , December 6th . 2018
A friendly “best beard” or “favorite beard” competition will be promoted on-line in an effort to raise additional money for a great organization and cause.
To vote for your favorite officer or officers for the best beard you can make an on-line monetary donation of your choice atwww.bpdcancercrusaders.com. (Will go LIVE By the 1st) $1 equals one vote for whomever you choose. Progress photos updated weekly!
The Beckley Police Department encourages everyone out there who is currently fighting the battle to stay strong!!! You are all heroes in our eyes and we stand by you!!!
