Senator Wise issues No-Shave November Challenge

By Dustin Isaacs

Frankfort, KY - Senator Max Wise (R-Campbellsville) invites members of the Kentucky General Assembly and all who wish to participate to join in his 'No-Shave November' challenge.

The goal of No-Shave November is to increase cancer awareness and raise funds for nonprofit cancer awareness and prevention organizations. It was made popular in 2009, two years after the death of Matthew Hill, a colorectal cancer patient. Participants put away their razors and clippers for the month and embrace their hair, which many cancer patients lose during cancer treatment.

"Cancer impacts the lives of far too many, directly and indirectly. That includes members of the Kentucky General Assembly, their families and friends, and staff in the legislative branch. I feel a responsibility to do my part to take the fight to cancer," Senator Max Wise said. "'No-Shave November' is an engaging way for us to unite with a common goal and to have some fun while doing it. I issue this challenge to my colleagues in the legislature, but I invite everyone to participate: statewide officeholders, local public and private leaders, and others. Together we can make a positive difference."

Participants are encouraged to contribute to a nonprofit organization of their choice that is working to eradicate the disease once and for all.
