It’s shaving time again

Hill boys gather donations in Nanny's honour for their head shave during Relay for Life

Keith Hill on the razor’s edge.

Tradition means different things to different people. For some it’s visiting gramma every Easter vacation, for others its meeting their friends for dinner and a show every Friday evening.

For the Hill boys, it’s getting their head shaved every Relay for Life. Or at least that’s been the tradition for the past six years.

Dad, Keith Hill sports an amazing head of hair which grows to gigantic proportions in just one year. His son’s MacKenzie and Hayden have more modest mops, but nevertheless, each year they have every hair shaved off to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life slated this year for May 24 in LeBourdais Park.

“This year it’s especially poignant for our family,” Keith said.

“I lost my mother to pancreatic cancer last November.”

This wasn’t Ivy Bodansky’s first battle with cancer, however its the one that took her life.

As part of the tradition, Keith and his sons fundraise ahead of time, always with the goal to beat last year’s total. This year, their goal is $1,500 but they are very grateful for every dollar they raise.

If you would like to see this transformation again, make a donation to The Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life website, follow the prompts to the name ‘The Hill Boys’ or Keith Hill.

You can also call Keith at 250-992-5593 (Tuesday to Thursday) and arrange for a pick up of a cash or cheque donation. Make cheques payable to The Canadian Cancer Society.
