After a summer of R & R, teacher Lea Altieri-Jylha and student Jasmin Bergamin of Holy Angels Learning Centre decided they were going to do it.
"They talked about it last year and thought it was a good idea," notes an e-mail from Jim Fitzpatrick, the Huron-Superior Catholic District School Board's communications officer.
"It" was getting their hair cut to make a donation to Locks of Love.
The organization makes wigs from human hair for cancer patients under the age of 21 in Canada and the United States who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy treatment or any other disease.
"Mrs. Altieri-Jyhla and Jasmin completed their pact in honour of Jasmin's aunt and all the woman who have suffered from cancer," notes Fitzpatrick. "Both women would like to thank Regis Hair Salon for their support."
