Akron encourages No-shave November

Akron encourages No-shave November

The event, sometimes called Movember, encourages men to skip shaving and grow facial hair for the month to bring awareness to the need for early detection and treatment of cancer.

The Ferndale and Hazel Park police departments are getting scruffy for a good cause.

No-Shave November is also a nonprofit organization that raises funds for cancer research and education.

After all, Tomlin tossed 4 2/3 scoreless innings in Game 3 before giving way to that nasty bullpen. "Willson's done a great job". He's come a long way. "I thought it was wonderful for the city", Francona said. "I'll be glad that we can DH somebody, though".


One hundred percent of the donations gathered by the police department during the month of November will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society No-Shave November campaign.

"Last year we were able to raise approximately $4,200.00 dollars for cancer research", said Westport Police Officer Brendan Fearon, president of the local Police Benevolent Association, in a statement. Morris Township Police Chief John McGuinness has suspended the department rule prohibiting facial hair so that members of the police department may participate in "No Shave November". Another goal is to use the money you typically would spend on shaving and grooming, to educate about cancer prevention, save lives and aid those fighting the battle. The team is accepting public donations that can be made through the links below. Donations are also tax-deductible.
