Hair A Thon

Hair-a-Thon

The 7th Annual University of Michigan Health at Sparrow Children’s Center Hair-a-Thon will be on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021 from 9 a.m. to noon on the 1st floor of the Plaza Building (Herbert Herman Cancer Center), 1140 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing. Free parking in Ramp B. Cuts will be by appointment only. Masks will be required regardless of vaccination status and additional precautions will be taken for the health of the community. Please check this site frequently, as more appointment slots may be added. For those who prefer, volunteers will be on site to collect pre-cut ponytails and braids from 9 a.m. to noon in front of the Sparrow Plaza Building.

Hair donations go to Maggie’s Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan and Children With Hair Loss, both Michigan-based organizations that provide free wigs for children and adolescents who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or other causes.

During these challenging times, there are still children right here in Mid-Michigan and beyond who are suffering the trauma of hair loss. We are thrilled to have collected thousands of hair donations during the first six years of the Hair-a-Thon and appreciate the Greater Lansing community’s ongoing support!
