Childhood Leukemia Foundation

ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA (NHL.com) - George Parros and 32 Ducks fans helped in the fight against cancer by donating their hair for the Second Annual George Parros Cut for the Kids on Monday at the ESPN Zone at Downtown Disney to benefit the Childhood Leukemia Foundation (CLF).

Since the start of his professional career, Parros has been growing his hair long so he can donate it to nonprofits that provide children with wigs during their treatments. Fans were required to provide at least 12 inches of hair and participants ranged from all ages. Hundreds of Ducks fans were on hand to watch the haircutting festivities and also supported the cause with monetary donations to CLF for photos and autographs with Parros. In addition, an opportunity drawing was held to win an autographed George Parros jersey, picture and puck. The meet-and-greet and raffle helped raised over $1,300 for the CLF.

The CLF is a national nonprofit organization that offers a wide range of services at no charge to children living with cancer and their families as well as provides thousands of custom made, 100% human hair wigs with kid-friendly hats (Hugs-U-Wear) to children around the country.

Professional hairstylists from SportClips volunteered to create a championship haircut experience and each participant left the event with a new, shorter look. For their generous donation to the Cut for the Kids event, fans met George Parros and received a Parros autographed stick.
