Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer

May 30, 2020

Brayden Ottenbreit Close Cuts for Cancer is an annual head-shaving event that started in 1998. It began when Brayden Ottenbreit, a young boy from Yorkton, was diagnosed with cancer. To support him, his dad Greg, his uncle Grant, and a group of friends decided to shave their heads. It ended up turning into a fundraiser. Over the last five years, almost $119, 000 has been raised for research conducted by the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency. Due to COVID-19 this year’s event has gone virtual. You can find Close Cuts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter using Cuts4Cancer. Thank you for supporting this cause and the Foundation.
