MOUNTAINS OF HOPE! Who we are:

Eight years ago, AL PAUL started taking part in balding for dollars after he experienced first hand the effects of cancer treatments. As radiation took his energy and chemo picked away at his imune system, he struggled with the thought that every day little kids are facing the same invasive and frightening journey. Al's brain cancer returned in 2019, and frankly got a little agressive. He's in palliative treatment now - but the Mountain Man is still skiing with friends on the really good days, and sticking with the hopeful traditions he has cultivated over the years, like his annual close-shave-fundraising-haircut.

Seven years ago, 4 year old COLT PAUL joined his dad onstage to "Shave for the Brave". His mother tried to talk him out of it, but he said he was doing it for "his daddy and his friend Nadia who left daycare to go fight cancer". Colt and Nadia are now in the same grade 5 class together (yay!).

Last year, a new Paul joined the tradition. ANDREW PAUL is shaving his head, mustache and muttonchops in solidarity with his Whistler family, in support of his Uncle Al, and in memory of his mom's best friend Colleen, who lost her battle last month.

ODEN MACLEOD has watched his best buddy Colt participate in Balding for Dollars year after year, and decided 2021 was the right time to join his friend in the challenge. Having a loyal best friend by your side is good medicine for a 10 year old whose Dad is fighting cancer. Having that friend shave his head in soidarity with you is a battle cry: 'Dude, I got your back. Let's always do silly things to make life feel better'.

Speaking of having someone's back, WB has The Mountain Pauls back! Whistler Blackcomb COO GEOFF BUCHHEISTER joins Team Paul this year. Shave his whole head? Nope, that wasn't what we had in mind when we reached out and asked Geoff to sacrifice a little bristle, and yet he still said yes: Help us meet our fundraising goal and Geoff will be shaving his famous soul patch (the power chin, the lip legging)! 

Rounding off the group is a story that resonates with why we are all charging the clippers and sharpening the blades. JEREMY VALERIOTE, another Team Paul newbie, knows this cause like he knows why his own heart beats. He is shaving his head for his daughter Rose, one half of beautiful twin sisters, and a thriving survivor of childhood cancer. How is a seven year old a superhero? You beat cancer at 3 years old. How do you do it? When good people like you donate to organizations like the BC Childrens Hospital Fund.

Thank you for your support.
