In honor of No-Shave November, several students at HCC have put away their razors for the entire month.
Beards are beginning to appear on the faces of a few male students. However, not to be outdone, the ladies are encouraged to stop shaving their legs.
The campuswide No-Shave November challenge is hosted by Phi Theta Kappa. After one month of not shaving, the best hairy beard for males, and the best hairy legs for females will receive a prize.
Cordell Meely, Topeka, has his beard started.
“I like growing beards,” Meely said. “And it’s for a good cause.”
No-Shave November is actually a nation-wide event, used to raise awareness and funds for cancer.
Phi Theta Kappa’s contest will be held on Nov. 30 at 4 p.m. in the Justice Theater in Shears Technology Center.
If students are unable to make the meeting, picture entries are also accepted. Each person competing will be required to pay a five-dollar entrance fee. Phi Theta Kappa is planning on giving 25% of the proceeds to the Cancer Council of Reno County.
According to LeAnn Bravi, sponsor of Phi Theta Kappa, this organization helps residents of Reno County cover cancer-related costs that might not be covered by insurance.
These costs could include travel expenses, wigs, or prosthetics.
