Hopkinton boy leads buzz-cut fund-raiser for cancer research

BALD SYMPATHY: Hopkinton 10-year-old Trey Brown prefers his hair a little long in the front, but fashion gave way to compassion when he and his lacrosse teammates recently had their heads shaved in solidarity with fellow player Owen DiNicola, whose mother, Holly, is battling metastatic breast cancer.

The fifth- and sixth-graders, all members of the Pirates Lacrosse Club in Hopkinton, were joined at Chris’ Barber Shop in Ashland by their siblings and coaches, who agreed to participate in the head-shaving event if the team exceeded $10,000 in fund-raising.
