People are going PINK for Kids!
When Hair Massacure started in 2003, 48 people shaved their heads and raised $37,000. The event has grown by leaps and pinks, and in 2010 more than 1,450 people, 24 schools and 420 volunteers participated and raised more than $1 million!
Thanks to the passion of participants and volunteers, Hair Massacure has raised more than $4.6 million to help children affected by cancer. Funds raised from this event are split between Make-A-Wish® Northern Alberta and the Stollery Children’s Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology, with a percentage to Ronald McDonald House.
There are many ways to get involved: pink your hair, shave your head, donate your hair, volunteer and fundraise!
For more information, to register, or to volunteer, please visit us online at www.hairmassacure.com or call Nicki at 780-431-4621.
Drop in anytime between 9am and 10 pm on February 11 and enjoy the fun with entertainment from special guests, music groups, goodies, and a whole lot of pink hair.

Tobogganing is a popular winter activity for many Albertans — but don’t let an injury spoil the fun.
Did you know … between 2004 and 2008 the average number of tobogganing-related injuries treated annually in Alberta emergency departments was 410? (Alberta Center for Injury Control and Research, ACICR)
KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE THIS WINTER BY FOLLOWING THESE SLEDDING SAFETY TIPS.
Wear the Gear
Get Trained …
Know the limits—teach children to rest if they are tired and to come in when they are cold.
INJURIES ARE NOT ACCIDENTS… THEY ARE PREDICTABLE AND PREVENTABLE!
Proper supervision, safe environments, hazard awareness, and participating in age-appropriate activities all help reduce the risk of injuries to children during the winter season.
