Duncan Stanners's Clean Water Project Fundraiser
and Great Haircutting Event

In 2014, my wife Jan and I went to Honduras to visit 2 villages in need of fresh water. She became passionate about the impact providing water has on people's lives.

Jan passed away in September 2016. Since then I have been growing my hair for a dual purpose:

  • To make a cancer wig in honour of Jan and all the women we know who have suffered hair loss through chemotherapy.
  • To raise money for a water project.

The project we are raising funds for is the village of Chichimora. Several years ago, 80% of their wells became contaminated with fecal bacteria, and over half of the men, women and children became afflicted with hepatitis.

Afterwards, you are most welcome to join us at the meeting of the Calgary West Rotary club. Lunch is $25. If you are a visitor, please let me know you're coming so I can ensure there is a meal prepared for you.

Thank you for considering support of this very worthy cause.

On February 26, 2018 at 11:30 am at the Grey Eagle hotel, the haircutting event will happen. Each person who makes a donation will be welcome to cut off a clump of my hair.
