Collin Haggett chose to have it cut on Sunday, Father’s Day, in honor of his grandfathers.

Haggett was inspired to cut grow his hair out after he learned why his mother Heidi Haggett had grown and donated her hair.

His hair was cut at a fundraiser for Potsdam Teacher, Lynn Tharrett, who is battling cancer.

He wore a handmade t-shirt saying, “No One Fights Alone” with a list of names on the back.

He ended up with 9.5 inches for his donation and chose to have his head shaved bald in honor of his friend, Addie Greene.

Barber, Casey Dillon, was set up at the fundraiser, and had the privilege of cutting Collin’s hair.
