Community Heroes: Hailey shaves again!


On May 31st, 2014, 11-year-old Hailey Walsh sat down once again in the barber’s chair to have her blond pixie-styled hair shaved off in support of Camp Delight. This marks the third year that Hailey has undergone a shave to support children affected by cancer and their families.

In 2012, Hailey became inspired by hearing about the shaves that her peers were doing to support charities. She thought long and hard about what she could do to help children her own age and that is when she decided to shave for Camp Delight.

Now three years later, Hailey and the Walsh family and friends have helped to raise more than $21,000 for Camp Delight, an eight-day residential camp for children and youth aged seven to 17 years old, who have been diagnosed with cancer, their siblings and bereaved siblings. Camp Delight is a major project of the Candlelighters Association of Newfoundland and Labrador and it is because of fundraisers like Hailey’s Shave that the association can offer its camp at a minimal cost to families.

This year, Hailey and friends raised $3,550 — bringing their three-year total to more than $21,000.
