The Bristol Police Union, with the support of Chief Gould, is pleased to announce that members of the BPD will be participating in “No Shave November.” The rules of No Shave November are simple; participants will put down their razors for 30 days and donate their monthly hair maintenance expenses to the American Cancer Society.

This is a creative and visible way to grow cancer awareness in our community.

No Shave November is a web based, non-profit organization devoted to “growing” cancer awareness; while raising funds to support cancer prevention, research, education about cancer prevention, as well as aid those fighting the battle.

It’s a month long journey in which participants forgo shaving and grooming in order to evoke conversations, while raising cancer awareness.

The goal of No Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose. You can learn more about this great event by visiting https://no-shave.org/

Starting November 1st till November 30th, participating BPD personnel will start letting their hair and/or facial hair grow. Each participating member of the BPD will donate $50.00 in order to participate in this fundraiser, in which 100% of the funds raised will go to the American Cancer Society.

So the next time you see a “fuzzy” cop…, ask him or her…, what’s it all about?
