The Packet (Clarenville) - - Sports -

The Bon­av­ista-Trin­ity Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion (BTMHA) held their fifth Shave for the Brave event last month.

This year they had four par­tic­i­pants: Ryan Marsh and Blair Smith, who have par­tic­i­pated in all five events, and Ben­jamin Dur­dle and Lane Ken­ney.

Over the five years, BTMHA have raised nearly $8,000 for Young Adult Cancer Canada (YACC), hav­ing had 45 heads shaved while fundrais­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to Dawn Bishop, chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer for YACC, it costs about $2,000 for a young adult with cancer to par­tic­i­pate in a four-day pro­gram, Re­treat Your­self.
