CARLIE White is not one to back down from a challenge.
While she admits she’s “pretty crazy”, one of the craziest plans Carlie has is to shave off all her hair – at her wedding reception.
Carlie will marry Henry Whitford in Queensland on March 3, before the couple returns to the district for their reception with 60 guests at a friend’s Milton property on March 16.
During the celebrations, she has vowed to shave off her thick, long chestnut locks as part of the World’s Greatest Shave, a fundraiser for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Carlie said that she had always wanted to shave off her hair and decided in October last year to sign up for the greatest shave to help find a cure for blood cancers.
When Henry proposed, they decided to marry before the shave so Carlie would not be a bald bride.
Since she signed up Carlie’s future mother-in law, living in the UK, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
“Henry is over there with his mum now and my nan passed away from cancer last year,” she said.
“It’s such a good cause if it helps find a cure for cancer.”
Carlie, who works in customer care at Ulladulla Toyota, aims to raise $2,000 over the next six weeks.
Her son Eddie, 13, step-daughter Lauren, 5, and fiancé support her decision.
“They know I’m always doing crazy things, so they weren’t surprised,” she said.
Carlie enjoys triathlons, cycling and recently took part in the Tough Mudder Challenge in Sydney.
Donation boxes will be available at Ulladulla Toyota or supporters can sponsor Carlie online at www.worldsgreatestshave南京夜网
Shaves will be held throughout the area from March 14 to 17.
