Shaving for Shaymus a success

The second annual Shaving for Shaymus event was a great success.

Thank you to JJ McAuliffe for hosting this event. A very special thank-you to the South Eastern Wisconsin Racine Harley Owner Group and their families, who supported and participated in this event. Thanks to the very kind hairdresser and everyone who participated.

With all of your help, the money raised went to a local child fighting cancer.

Next year will be bigger and better; hopefully, we can reach out to more local children fighting this horrible disease.

Founder, Shaymus Guinn Foundation
Racine

           I have pledged to become a member in a very prestigious club, only for the brave of heart and wild of soul.  On March 18th, after the Racine St. Patrick’s Day Parade, join me at McAuliffe’s on the Square, 213 6th Street, Racine, for the 6th Annual “Shaving for Shaymus!” After the ceremonial shaving of my head, I will be an official Bald Bad A$$!  Inducting me into this club provides financial support to the Shaymus Guinn Foundation, a local, entirely volunteer run not for profit organization that supports local families battling pediatric cancer.  

            The Shaymus Guinn Foundation was founded in 2012 in honor of Shaymus Guinn who lost his courageous 4-year battle with cancer.  The foundation provides financial and emotional support to local families battling this horrific condition.  Shaymus would have been 16 years old on 2/23/2017, so in honor of his birthday and his wishes to help other kids like him, a humble pledge of $15 will help me get into this club, and in turn will help local families in need, in so many ways that many of us are fortunate enough to never have to comprehend…
