ALS, fundraiser

Ralph “Boonie” Lethbridge hadn’t shaved in 39 years. The proudly bearded Canadian felt he needed to do something drastic when his good friend was diagnosed with ALS.

Boonie decided to have a unique fundraiser. He had his decades old beard shaved off at a local skating rink. The event raised $51,000 for an ALS organization.

Check out the emotional response from his friend Larry who was diagnosed with ALS. What a great friend Boonie is!

Boonie loved his beard, but his friend is more important than any facial hair.

This is great type of fundraiser. It brings awareness and curiosity. Look at how many people came to witness this! And now they know more about ALS because of Boonie.
