Shavathon provides the opportunity to give back, by raising funds for cancer patient care & support programmes through shaving or spraying, or by making a hair donation for wigs; and to show solidarity with family, friends, colleagues or fellow students battling cancer, or whose loved ones are fighting cancer.
