CSU students shave heads to raise money for breast cancer research

Shave to Save

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Kappa Sigma fraternity held its 8th annual Shave to Save event at Columbus State University on Thursday.

Fraternity members and others shaved their heads to raise money for breast cancer awareness. Their hope is to raise at least $10,000 from the event.

In the past seven years they've raised nearly $50,000.

"The importance of the event is to raise awareness of breast cancer awareness," Kappa Sigma President Kyle Williams said. "Breast cancer affects so many people nationwide so we want to bring awareness to the campus and this is definitely one of the most well-known events here at CSU."

CSU President Tim Mescon, students, faculty members, parents and alumni were on hand at the event.
