Bikers Shed Hair for Kids in Need

The leather goes on, the Harley-Davidson comes out – and the hair comes off? That’s how a couple of bikers in Duluth, Ga., spent their Thanksgiving.

They’re doing their part to help the national organization Locks of Love, which helps provide wigs made of human hair for children living with cancer. [Children With Cancer: The Quality of Life]

Often times, boys, girls and grown women will grow their hair long enough to cut off and donate the minimum of ten inches.

But, on Thursday, two men who might not fit that typical profile let down their hair to help others.

“It’s a bunch of guys getting together and having some fun,” said donor Ric Elias.

Smiling, donor Steve Atffernan said, “I’m going to do it. I’m going to let it go. Me and Rick talked it about a couple months ago and I kind of got cold feet.” [Sit Down, Shut Up and Hang On! – A Biker’s Guide to Life]
