Congratulations to the Members at Metro 197 on Lakeshore Road in St. Catharines for their amazing work raising funds for the Walker Family Cancer Centre in Niagara region.

On February 4 – World Cancer Day – the members held their annual “Shave to Raise” event which included cupcake decorating, face painting, raffles, live music, a great BBQ, and of course, some heads being shaved!

Local firefighters turned up, fire truck and all, to participate. Member Mike Radics actually grew his hair and beard over the last 12 months with the sole intent of shaving it all off for this event.

The event was coordinated by Member Janette Priolo and with the great help and support of all the members and staff at Metro 197, and community, they raised an amazing $4,695.95.
