World’s Greatest Shave Superheroes: Epping Boys High School students

Eleven awe­some boys from Epping Boys High School in Syd­ney, are now rock­ing bald heads hav­ing raised over $24,000 so far as part of this year’s World’s Great­est Shave. The boys had their heads shaved on-air as part of Sam Mac’s live weath­er cross on Chan­nel 7’s Sun­rise, which kicked off bright and ear­ly at 5.30am on Mon­day 22 Feb­ru­ary with sev­en live cross­es in total, and inspir­ing thou­sands of Aus­tralians around the country.

An ambas­sador for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion, 21-year-old Zoie Moore, and the Leukaemia Foundation’s Gen­er­al Man­ag­er of Sup­port­ers, Rachael Lance, were also inter­viewed on the day to help raise aware­ness of World’s Great­est Shave and to invite more peo­ple to join the mis­sion to save lives and con­quer the world from blood cancer.

Stu­dents par­tic­i­pat­ing in World’s Great­est Shave learn impor­tant val­ues and lessons through the shared expe­ri­ence of shav­ing and fundrais­ing, includ­ing empa­thy, empow­er­ment, phil­an­thropy, com­mu­ni­ty val­ues and social con­science. In addi­tion, they sig­nif­i­cant­ly help the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion to ensure that fam­i­lies fac­ing blood can­cer have access to the best pos­si­ble sup­port, care, infor­ma­tion and treat­ment, as well as a place to call home dur­ing treatment.

Epping Boys High School are a fan­tas­tic exam­ple of how tak­ing part in World’s Great­est Shave can become one of life’s most mem­o­rable expe­ri­ences, as par­tic­i­pat­ing stu­dents share the expe­ri­ence of shav­ing their hair togeth­er as a group, and also learn that the sim­ple, yet brave act of shav­ing, can make a big difference.
