Nathan Longpre, a forward for the Chicago Wolves, learned of his friend and former teammate Chris Kushneriuk’s cancer diagnosis last year. In an effort inspired by his friend, Longpre made a promise to shave his head if $750 was raised in support of Chicago Wolves Charities by the end of February. The donation goal was met, and Hair Cuttery’s Golf Center salon in Hoffman Estates, Ill. had the head-shaving honors!
On Monday, Feb. 25, salon stylist Fran Zelma took Longpre from flowing hockey hair to short buzz in no time at all. “I haven’t had hair this short in years, probably about six years – not since I was a young kid,” he told the Chicago Wolves. “I have cut it periodically, but I hadn’t had short hair like this.”
We are so proud of Nathan Longpre, our Hair Cuttery team and everyone involved in helping achieve Nathan’s goal while raising cancer awareness. To donate to Nathan's friend, Chris, please visit http://chriskushneriuk.org/.
