COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some college students in Columbus are going bald for a good cause.
Columbus State University students participated in the tenth annual "Shave to Save" charity event, hosted by the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.
Students are shaving their heads to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.
Within the past nine years, the organization has raised $72,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Organizers say breast cancer hits close to home for some of their members.
"Over the past 10 years a lot of the brothers have been impacted directly with family members, especially this year," said fraternity member Grant Carter. "One of our brothers, his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer."
The organization hopes to raise $15,000 with this year's event.
