BUSINESSES and residents from across the Whitsundays are being asked to be brave and shave or help out with a donation for the World's Greatest Shave next week.
The Leukaemia Foundation's biggest annual fundraiser is set for March 14-17 and they are counting on Whitsunday residents to join with tens of thousands of other Aussies in shaving or colouring their hair to raise funds for a worthy cause.
This year the foundation is aiming to raise $4.5million to help fund research into better treatments and cures for blood cancers.
More than 125,000 people will sign up to shave or colour their hair, raising funds for research and free services for people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders.
Six Queenslanders are diagnosed with a form of blood cancer every day.
The Leukaemia Foundation is seeking everyone's support and encouraging them to sign-up at www.worldsgreatestshave.com.
