Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --Employees and customers at Burrito Union in Duluth are going bald, for a cause.

People were shaving their heads, or their facial hair in the name of cancer awareness on Friday.

Participants made a five dollar donation to shave or be shaved.
The money raised will go for cancer research.

One Burrito Union employee organized the event to support a family member who has suffered from cancer.

"I'm going to Arizona to take care of my grandfather who just defeated lymphoma so the event is inspired by that. We are doing all types of cancer research cancer funds its not just lymphoma, that's what i'm shaving my head for," said Kendra Jaeger, organizer.

People who shaved their heads also got a free pint of beer at Burrito Union.
