Thomasville, GA -- May 11, 2012 --

John Clark will be the first to admit it, he's due for a haircut.

It's been 18 years since the 35-year-old Clark got it cut.

But Friday 5-11-12, Clark is cutting it off! Clark is donating his hair to a non-profit organization called "Locks of Love" as part of this year's Thomas County 'Relay for Life'.

"Well, it's a fun way to get rid of my hair. I've had it for 18 years. I'm just ready for something different and anything I can do to raise awareness for Cancer research and the importance of donating to a cause like that is a good thing," says Clark.

Locks of Love makes wigs for children who have lost their hair from chemo-therapy. Clark is hoping to raise about $5,000 dollars.

    Thank you John for doing something that means so much to those who need it.There are so many ways to give than money when you don't have much,or if you have alot.All of us can make our world better with kindness and looking at people for who they are and not what someone else has done to us.Cancer changes lives but you and others can change lives by reaching out and all of us can afford to pray.

    I have had several friends do this. It is so great of a thing to do. I can't grow my hair long due to bad arthritis, but I am glad that there are people that can.
