On March 30th 2016 the 11th annual Kappa Sigma HeadShave fundraiser was hosted by the Omicron-Xi Chapter at the University of Lethbridge. The event was a huge success with more than $21,000 being raised for charity. Over 100 participants, including three women, shaved their heads for A Greater Cause that day.
“We’ve had many brothers affected by cancer in the past, and HeadShave supports each and every family that’s hit by cancer,” said Kappa Sigma Brother Justin Chymboryk – this year’s organizer of HeadShave.
Over the lifetime of the event the Kappa Sigma brothers at the University of Lethbridge have raised over $250,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society. Not only has HeadShave been successful from a monetary donation standpoint but it also has helped raise awareness through media coverage – this year’s event was featured on two TV stations and on the radio.
Kappa Sigma is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. It is this commitment that has provided the inspiration and vision for A Greater Cause – the Fraternity’s bold initiative to promote volunteerism, citizenship and service to the community. During the 2013-2015 biennium, Kappa Sigma members raised more than $5.8 million for charity and volunteered over 1.1 million hours of community service as part of the initiative.
