Adelaide Strikers players had a different focus above the neck yesterday.
Rather than a Shaun Tait bouncer (see the dent on Ben McDermott’s helmet above) Michael Klinger and Jon Holland shaved their heads to get the Strikers’ campaign to raise $20,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave started.
The Strikers squad spent Monday morning at the Bridgestone Australia Leukaemia Foundation Village in Northfield.
The village is a home away from home for regional patients and their families who must relocate to Adelaide for vital blood cancer treatment.
Nathan Reardon and Jono Dean will join the cause by shaving their heads before the Striker’s final match on Wednesday.
The Strikers will be asking fans at the Adelaide Oval game tomorrow night against the Melbourne Renegades to donate money to the Foundation.
The World’s Greatest Shave is the Leukaemia Foundation’s most important fundraiser, providing vital funds to help lessen the impact for people affected by blood cancer.
