After the game and before the fireworks show, some Dash players donated their hair to the cause. Players, coaches, and staff from the Dash who participated include: Grant Buckner, Jake Cose, Joseph Dvorsky, Jeremy Farrell, Martin Medina, Jason Van Skike and Strength & Conditioning Coach Tim Rodmaker. Also, bat boy Tyler DeBerry and Dash front office team member Mike McKeever participated.

Fans watched barbers from The Hair Den shave the players’ heads on the field. During the game, fans contributed to the cause near the Kids Zone at BB&T Ballpark, where VS. Cancer was raising awareness and funds. In addition, The Hair Den had stations set up for fans to get their heads shaved to support the cause.

A Winston-Salem nonprofit organization, VS. Cancer is dedicated to helping save kids’ lives by empowering athletes and communities to help fund lifesaving cancer efforts. Half of the evening’s proceeds will help fund cancer research on a national level, while the other half will be donated to Brenner Children’s Hospital, a part of the Wake Forest Baptist Health system.

For more information or to donate to the worthwhile cause, fans can contact VS. Cancer at 336/209-2187 or visit HERE.
