Look good, do good
Great Clips Cut-a-thon this June
From June 22 – June 28, participating Great Clips salons in Minnesota and Wisconsin will host the 21st annual Cut-a-thon, during which a portion of the proceeds from every haircut given throughout the week will support the School Re-Entry Program at Children’s.
The program is designed to help Children’s patients, who have been newly diagnosed or have been treated for a serious illness, go back to school with confidence. As part of the program, a child life specialist visits a child’s classroom to educate students and staff about how an illness impacts a child’s life. Teaching classmates respectful ways to discuss and ask questions about a health issue can greatly decrease the likelihood of rumors and teasing.
For the past 20 years, Great Clips has been instrumental in funding the school re-entry program. Through the cut-a-thon alone, they have raised more than $1,000,000, and aim to continue supporting this vital program through various company efforts. And you can help! Donate today, and plan to visit a Great Clips salon this June to get your haircut and give back! Find a salon near you.
