Oak Bay High students raise thousands for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock

Tears of triumph stream down the face of Grade 10 Oak Bay High student Briar Rose Redchurch as she holds her long blonde hair in tightly clenched fists. Redchurch, also shown below, along with about 14 other Oak Bay High students, lost her locks in support of the Cancer Society Tour de Rock last Thursday morning.

Redchurch raised $5,200 for the charity, more than any previous Oak Bay High student.

Stylist Christina Whitley shaves Callum Masterton’s head as part of the event. Masterton shaved his head in honour of his grandfather, a cancer survivor. The Tour de Rock team rolls into Oak Bay High to receive their donation tomorrow morning.
