Jeff Illies has been growing out his hair since the start of his football career at NDSU. On March 24, he’s going to cut it all off. The Lidgerwood, North Dakota, native is teaming up with Jaime Krump from his hometown to raise money for this event. In 2011, Krump founded Cares for Cancer, Inc. as its own 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, to help local North Dakota families raise money for the expenses that come with having a child battle cancer.
Illies’ goal is to raise $20,086 for the event. Click here to donate. Whether or not Illies reaches his goal, his head will be shaved March 24, and the money raised will go to Cares for Cancer, Inc.
