Students at Port Moody’s Heritage Woods secondary school lost their locks Nov. 3 during the first ever Kuts 4 Kids.

The event was organized by Sydney Freeman and Becky Curran to raise awareness for alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes people to lose their hair.

Tina Glover shared her story about growing up with alopecia and nine students and one teacher had their head shaved by students in Gleneagle secondary’s hairdressing program.

The hair will be sent to “Locks of Love” and made into wigs for those with alopecia and cancer.
