Video: Hair falls, cash flows for Oak Bay High’s major Cops for Cancer fundraiser

Total tally to be revealed during Tour de Rock stop Oct.5

Oak Bay High grad Caleb Hosie came back to high school today (Sept. 26) for Dylan.

The school’s C4C (Cops for Cancer) campaign kicked into high gear with the annual head shave, leg wax, pie-in-the-face day.

Hosie took the stage among the current students to get his head shaved for fellow graduate Dylan Jones who died earlier this month after a battle with leukemia.

Alongside Hosie, many girls garnered more than $1,000 for emotional haircuts, and at least one shaved her head. In tradition, reams of boys and girls took the stage to lose their locks. Teachers and students took pies in the face, all for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock that celebrates 20 years this year.

Students reveal the fundraising total, from the headshave event and others through the summer and fall, during a Tour stop at Oak Bay High. The Tour de Rock team traverses Vancouver Island fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society. They expect to visit Oak Bay Oct. 5.
