Jackrabbits cut their hair for a cause at the Locks of Love event Feb. 3 in The Union. This marks the third consecutive year that the University Program Council has sponsored the event.

The locks of hair from each student will be donated to children from the Locks of Love foundation.

These individuals are under 21 years of age and suffering from long-term genetic hair loss. Most of the individuals suffer from alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure.

There were six student participants in all:

Beth DeJong, freshmen graphic design major; Danielle Meinke, freshmen architecture major; Megan Pavlow, junior advertising major; Miriana Boyce, junior dietetics major; Jacob Anderson, senior biology major; and Kimberly Graff, senior English education major.

Megan Pavlow donated and also helped coordinate the Locks of Love event. She resounded the thoughts of the group saying they are happy to cut their hair for a good cause.

The lock-cutting was provided by Carousel Tan and Beauty Salon. See video from the event on The Collegian’s website.
