The leader of the Labour Party and co-leader of the Green Party face the brave challenge of shaving their heads on the first day of the Shave for a Cure campaign (26 - 31 March) at Queens Wharf in Wellington.
Pru Etcheverry, CEO, LBC, says, "So many people know someone who has been diagnosed with leukaemia or a blood cancer. Shaving is a simple and very visible way of showing their support.
"It will be fun to see who New Zealanders most want to see Shave and we're looking forward to seeing the minister's new hairdos. We hope their leadership encourages other Kiwis to shave their heads to make this the biggest New Zealand Shave yet."
The political duo will join the thousands of individuals in schools, universities, businesses and community groups who will shave their heads during the week long campaign.
LBC receives no government funding so the money raised goes towards their core services including patient support and research.
