With 100 days until THON, Students continued to give back to the dreamers by donating their hair. Students took the stage to donate their hair to the kids through Wigs For Kids. Shortly after, students held their freshly cut hair and threw up their diamonds for the kids. "I'm so happy that a little girl can have my hair and be as happy with it as I was," said Yaczin Hernandez junior-international politics, a member of H.E.A.L. Help Every Angel Live. THON has partnered with Wigs For Kids for the past six years. Wigs For Kids provides children who have pediatric cancer with wigs at no cost to the families. In order to be able to donate to Wigs For Kids, donors must cut a minimum of 12 inches, and the hair cannot be color-treated, permed or highlighted, according to the THON website. "I did it for my THON child and for girls who can't have the bad hair days that we complain about and would do anything to have what we have," Dancer Samantha Waters senior-supply chain and information systems said. This is Waters last THON, but she said she will continue to donate her hair to kids with pediatric cancer in the future.
