Inco Shines

Here's a good story from the mining town of Sudbury, Ontario, Canada:
Ryan Harris’ friends, family and co-workers are willing to pay a lot to see him lose his long, blond mane of hair.

So far, the 25-year-old Inco transportation operator has collected almost $800 in pledges to have his head shaved during the Inco Shines fundraiser, which is raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society to invest in prostate cancer research.

Seventy-five other Inco employees are also having their "domes chromed" Saturday at 11 am in the centre court of the New Sudbury Shopping Centre. The workers are hoping to raise $50,000 for the cause.
The male-dominated mining company is raising money for prostate cancer because it's the number one cancer among men, but it often doesn't get talked about.
