Students Participate in No Shave November

As of November 1st, you may have seen some students on campus with a more robust arrangement of facial hair than what you are normally accustomed to. This year, Western Reserve Academy’s Student Council is holding a fundraising event in support of the No-Shave November movement, and many students have taken on the mission to contribute to the cause. Each student who completed the application process donated at least $10 towards cancer awareness and research. More information is available at no-shave.org, and even those who are not able to grow out facial hair are welcomed to donate towards the program.

Nicolas Bell Fabregat ’19, a new participant to the annual tradition, says that “No Shave November is an amazing opportunity to support an honorable cause, and at the same time, I actually get to see how my facial hair looks. I’ve always shaved prior to this fundraiser.” Ben Horrigan ’18 happily states, “It’s a good way to express myself and raise awareness for cancer research, plus it’s helped me save time shaving in the morning which I can spend towards studying.” No-Shave November is a tradition that is over a decade old. It originated from a group of 30 Australian men in support of prostate cancer and depression, and this year WRA joins this ever growing initiative.
