Nine-year-old Gray Academy student Ari Kay has been waging a so far, successful battle with childhood leukaemia. On May 1 Ari, along with his sister Sydney, participated in a very special event at the school when two individuals - Morris Henoch and Lindsay Kerr, offered to have their long tresses shorn and donated as part of the fight against cancer.

Gray Academy Vice-Principal Joyce Kerr (also Lindsay’s mother) explained that the students had raised hundreds of dollars already to be donated to Cancercare Manitoba. Morris’s and Lindsay’s hair was going to be used in the manufacture of wigs for cancer victims, Joyce explained to the students.
The honour of cutting Morris’s ponytail fell to Ari himself, while his sister Sydney was tasked with cutting Lindsay’s hair.
