Bald is Beautiful

This Mother’s Day, some Houston Dynamo fans decided to skip brunch and get their heads shaved for Mom’s special day. But doing that had nothing to do with honoring mothers everywhere (although they’re totally deserving!). It was all about showing support for children with cancer through the annual event, Bald is Beautiful,   sponsored by Dynamo Charities.

Now in its’ sixth year, the Bald is Beautiful campaign seeks to raise money for awareness and research in the effort to find a cure to end childhood cancer by donating money from the event to the Curing Children’s Cancer Fund. All the action happened right before the Houston Dynamo took on Real Salt Lake at BBVA Compass Stadium.

“Dynamo Zone” co-host Jason Simon participated to mark his third time at the event and ended up giving over $600.00. But he wasn’t the only one. Susan Leining, a retired teacher and soccer coach from Santa Fe, Texas, also joined in. Learn more about what inspired her to get involved, below.

In the past, former Dynamo players Mike Chabala and Craig Waibel have spearheaded the event.
