Cherokee students host Cut-A-Thon to help make wigs for kids with cancer

Cherokee High School students in Marlton, New Jersey hosted a Cut-A-Thon event to help make wigs for children with cancer. The fundraiser was held at the school’s cosmetology center, and it was organized by seniors Sarah Dever and Lily Whetstone.

The Cut-A-Thon was a huge success, with over 30 students and staff members volunteering their time and skills to cut hair. The event raised $2,500, which will be donated to the non-profit organization Children With Hair Loss.

Children With Hair Loss provides free wigs to children who have lost their hair due to medical conditions, such as cancer or alopecia. The organization relies on donations and fundraising events like the Cut-A-Thon to provide wigs to children in need.

Dever and Whetstone said they were inspired to organize the event after participating in a similar fundraiser last year. They said they wanted to continue to give back to the community and help children who are battling cancer.

The event was a heartwarming display of community support and generosity. Students, staff members, and community members came together to support a great cause and make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.

The Cherokee High School Cut-A-Thon serves as a reminder that anyone can make a positive impact in their community. By volunteering, donating, or simply spreading the word about important causes, individuals can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
