“43 children get diagnosed with cancer every day in this country,” says Randy Ware, founder and CEO of WestCMR. “They don’t get to choose what happens to their hair, but we do. We hold this event to support these children and their families, and to participate in funding the research for a cure.”

The June 2nd event will be held at WestCMR’s headquarters at 520 Howard Court in Clearwater, FL. Individuals willing to participate by committing to a military buzz cut for the cause are asked to RSVP by emailing [email protected]. Refreshments and light bites will be served, and free parking will be available.

The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is one of the many local charities that WestCMR supports — both financially, and by creating awareness for their mission and impact. At the time of this release, the company’s overall cumulative charitable contributions will have surpassed $2M.

“We are dedicated to all our stakeholders, including our team, our community, and our planet,” adds Ware. The CEO’s motto, We All Leave A Footprint, And It Matters, is painted in large letters in the mural that adorns one of WestCMR’s warehouse exterior walls.
