No Shave November Comes to a Close

AMARILLO - At first, it was not easy for Clint or Dave. Beard growing is an art, and they needed help. They then reached out to some of our newsrooms shaggier co-workers for advice.
    
Clint Brakebill,  our Sports Director says, "It's nice to have someone said, 'Alright, here's the technique, this is how you need to do it, this is what you need to put in it.' The specific combs, I have one for my hair. Apparently, you need one for your face and all of that good stuff."

They are not going through all of this training for no reason, it is all about helping the 24 Hours in the Canyon Cancer Survivorship Center.

Ryan Parnell, the 24 Hours in the Canyon Cancer Survivorship Center Founder said, "Some people really get behind it. Clint and Dave have really gotten behind it and both were a part of it last year. I really do appreciate them for joining in and being a part of it and having a good time with it.

All of the proceeds from the funds raised go directly to helping the center's programs like yoga, massage, and buying wigs.

Barbara Podzemny, cancer survivor said, "When I was diagnosed, they give you so many pamphlets with so much information and I was reading through it and I saw this Cancer Survivorship Center. I read all that they offered. The swimming and the exercises and the counseling and just everything you can imagine for free, forever,"

Clint said it might be itchy, but it is worth it.

"When we're able to use our platform and our friends see it, my family sees it, viewers see it, co-workers see it, sponsors see it, they want to be a part of something like this, and that's what's cool about it," said Brakebill. "We're able to use our platform just a little bit, give back just a little bit."
