The Covid flow has been strong for many, especially for Brandon Daily, who hasn’t cut his hair since pre-pandemic! Brandon couldn’t decide to let it grow through the rest of 2021 or shave it off. That’s when his wife, Shelley, thought of a fun way they could let others decide while raising research dollars for their niece, Alana, who lives with CMT GDAP1 (Type 4a). They would host a virtual ‘Mow or Grow’ fundraiser with each $1 vote going towards CMT research.
One week later, the RESULTS WERE IN! 1173 GROW votes to a staggering 1690 for MOW. It was a chilly morning to get a buzz cut, but Brandon was a trooper as Alana wielded the clippers for the first time.
“We’re so thankful to everyone who voted! Our fundraiser total, including donations and matched money, was $6241!”
“HNF made the entire process turnkey and effortless with a customized webpage, promo images, and voting updates…the hardest part was sweeping up all of Brandon’s hair!”
Luxurious Locks Wanted!
