HUBAND PARK ELEMENTARY student Callee Stromme

Callee Stromme, 8, of Courtenay was inspired by other people who raised money for a charity ball tournament in Duncan called the Cody Classic.

She decided to shave her head after seeing others at the tourney donate their hair for wigs. All the funds, including $1,195 raised by Callee went to help families dealing with childhood cancer.

The headshave took place in Duncan on Sept. 15 at the 15th annual Cody Classic Ball Tourney.

Charity founder Wes Swain’s son Cody was diagnosed with cancer when he was four. Cody survived his battle with cancer but his family has continued for 15 years to raise money for other families that have children battling cancer.
