‘Shave it for Steph’ will honor Auburn police officer

Stephanie Segur 2 rsWorcester – When Auburn Police Officer Stephanie Segur was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma on May 30, she knew that she would have to undergo chemotherapy and as a result, would lose her hair.

She has decided to face that particular challenge “head-on” in a way that that will also raise some funds for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.

Segur will shave her head as part of a special fundraiser, “Shave it for Steph,” that will be held Sunday, June 30 at Cross Fit CenterMass on Shrewsbury St. in Worcester from 2 to 6 p.m. For a $10 donation, friends and supporters are invited to shave their heads as well. (Donations will be gratefully accepted if one chooses not to shave.)

The event will also feature food and drinks, music and a raffle. Those who shave their heads will receiveSteph_Police-Uniform_color a free t-shirt and five free raffle tickets.
