Moore Students Raise Money And Shave Their Heads For Local Cancer Society

MOORE, Oklahoma -

About a month ago I got an email from the local Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They wanted me to be aware of a ceremony that was going to happen at 2:30 p.m. on Monday March 2 at Heritage Trails Elementary School in Moore. 

Those 880 students and their teachers had raised more than $40,000 since late December. Heritage Trails' fifth grader Camden Looper is battling leukemia, and his classmates and teachers have been rallying around him. 

Back to that $40,000. When the fundraising campaign began, Heritage Trails Principal Dr. Jason Perez told his school if they raised $25,000, he would shave his head. Well at Monday's ceremony, Dr. Perez held up his end of the deal. Several of his students also allowed volunteers from South Oklahoma City's 'Diva Salon' and other salons to shave their heads too. 

Sunday night, I said what the heck, I may as well get my head shaved with the Heritage Trails Principal and those kids on Monday to honor my father. It was the least I could do.
