These two on the left, one being my Dad (Ian) and the other Vice President of Got Insulin (Brett) are going to lose their beards in the name of charity! Cut throat razor style! Completely bald.. Like their heads.. har har.
This is no small feat for either man.
Young Brett has been rocking the facial hair since he came out of the womb... Well maybe not that long but most certainly since he was in his early teens on and off and consistently since he was 16. I can't remember seeing him without some form of stubble.. I hear his mum is very keen for him to loose the beard. Brett wants to raise at least $2000 for Got Insulin by shaving off his rather large beard.
Ian (so strange to type Ian, I want to say Dad) has been bearded with at least stubble since 1977. Thats 36 years. I think in my almost 29 years on this earth I have seen him once without complete facial hair., but it definitely wasn't cut throat. I'm almost positive my 27 year old brother has not seen him without a beard. So all in all this is going to be very interesting!! Ian/Dad has decided his fundraising goal is $1000. We will be opening up a fundraising page next Monday (May 12th) for you to donate to. The big DIA-BEARD-ES for DIABETES is going to happen at a Got Insulin Family day. Date tbc.. (July 13th or August 10th) You'll be able to bring along the family, meet these hairy men, there will be a jumping castle, football clinic and a sausage sizzle. Because we all love a BBQ. The shave will take place after lunch and both these amazing men are going to walk away with very cold, naked faces, all for a good cause. Get behind them and show your support for Got Insulin by making a donation!
More details will be shared once confirmed. Stay tuned!
