Focus: A Fair Haven Cop’s Shave for Childhood Cancer

The event was dubbed Shave a Hero/Save a Hero.

Cops, firefighters, teachers, school administrators … all sorts of community leaders, and even kids and parents … They all gathered on Saturday at Middletown Fire Department’s Community Fire Company in the Leonardo section of the township to get a head shave as a way of showing their participation in the fight against childhood cancer. Participants’ heads were shaved by kids with cancer.

Fair Haven Police Cpl. John Waltz (along with his son) was one of the shavees. And, after the shave, a good time was had by all at the firehouse. Proceeds funded the cause via Infinite Love for Kids Fighting Cancer.

Take a look at the photos below for a glimpse into the event … (And don’t forget to click to enlarge!)
