Things are going to get hairy.
Since 2011, the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) has partnered with the Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) for the annual NHLPA Beard-a-thon, an initiative in support of life-saving research. Honoring a great hockey tradition, National Hockey League (NHL) players ask Canadians to grow real or virtual beards with them during the NHL playoffs, while raising funds to help prevent heart disease and stroke.
To participate in the NHLPA Beard-a-thon, fans can pledge their favorite NHL player, beard-growing friends and family, or sign-up to “grow some hair to show they care”. Thanks to the involvement of NHLPA players and passionate fans, the NHLPA Beard-a-thon has raised over $300,000 to date, fueling HSF research, health education and social change to improve heart health for all Canadians.// beardathon.ca
