 “Hair Raising Fundraiser has become a Family Affair”


 UPDATE – 23 May, 2019


To date we have raised $3000


In support of this Fundraising Project, my wife Chris who is President of the Fibromyalgia Society of Edmonton and Area, is also growing her hair long. As you will see from the “Family Photo”, the furry member of our family also has long hair. “Joey” would like to get a spring hair cut as soon as we reach our fund raising objective. We had this picture taken to portray what a shaggy, long hair, “Hair Raising” family we have become. Chris likes her long hair but would like to get it styled a bit shorter.  I sure would like to get my hair cut as soon as possible. So please help us reach this Fundraiser goal of $5000 for a Fibromyalgia Society Gathering Place / Office

Watch for special events for the hair raising project during May Fibromyalgia Awareness Month!
