SASKATOON, Sask. — It seems cooler heads have prevailed in Yanke Group’s fight against breast cancer. As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October, top Yanke executives have had their heads shaved after the company’s employees raised a total of $42,150 for the cause.
The one-week initiative, titled “Shave the Bosses Head,” was organized by a Saskatoon local radio station C95 during their C95 Radio Marathon for Breast Cancer research.
The deal dictated that if Yanke staff were able to raise $25,000, five Yanke executives, including president and CEO Russel Marcoux, would be donning buzz-cuts this winter.
Not only did Yanke raise $25,000, they raised the second highest individual donation for the C95 Radio Marathon.
“Yanke conducted various internal activities throughout the week, and the call was put out to all staff, suppliers, and the public. The response was overwhelming. We want to put out a huge thank you to everyone for their generous support, it was truly inspiring,” said Yanke officials in a release.
