All proceeds from the second annual Hair-a-thon will be going to the family of a young boy who’s been diagnosed with muscular dystrophy.

Hairdressers from seven different salons in the area, along with local businesses and volunteers came together for the second year in a row.

Members of Kapuskasing’s fire department and officers from the James Bay OPP showed up for a trim and to donate to the event.

One of the events’ organizers, Pascal Fraser, says the community support, in terms of attendance and local businesses getting involved, has been overwhelming.
