Benchmark Estimating team members to participate in World’s Greatest Shave for a Cure

Members of the Benchmark Estimating and MacDonald International teams have formed a team to participate in this year’s World’s Greatest Shave for a Cure.

Called the MacDonald Group team, members will be shaving their heads or colouring their hair to support the Leukaemia Foundation, a charity that raises money for people suffering from blood cancer.

About the World’s Greatest Shave

Every hour of every day, someone in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma. Every two hours, someone dies from one of these blood cancers. There are 40,000 people living with blood cancer in Australia alone. The World’s Greatest Shave for a Cure helps to raise money to put towards research, which is needed to find better treatments as well as cures for blood cancers. Donations also help patients and their families during treatments helping them out with accommodation near hospital, transport to appointments and emotional support.

From 15-17 March 2012, thousands of people will get sponsored to shave, colour or wax their hair to help people with blood cancer. Since 1998, over a million people have shaved or coloured their hair, raising in excess of $120 million.
