FRANCIS CUTS LOCKS FOR WORLD’S GREATEST SHAVE CAUSE

first_imgFrancis Wood, one of the Touch Football community’s most talented young referees, has given her hair its marching orders as part of the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave. For Wood, the 2007 World’s Greatest Shave was the culmination of a seven-year plan. The nineteen-year-old grew her long locks down to her buttocks before getting rid of them for charity. She had been growing her hair since first deciding to shave her head after her aunt Vicki was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1998. “I couldn’t do it while I was at school. I wanted to grow my hair past my bottom and do something weird and shave it off,” Francis said.  Aunt Vicki and mother Michelle are proud of the dedication that Francis has shown.Michelle, who has also shaved her head in the past, donated bone marrow to sister Vicki in 1999. “I think [shaving] it’s a great idea, I think it’s quite honourable,” Michelle said. Francis and Michelle both think more people should get involved with World’s Greatest Shave. So far Francis has raised about $1,500. She is aiming to reach $4,000 by the end of the year and is currently on track. Michelle fully supports what her daughter has done.“She took an overall look at it and knew that it was ok to do it. It wasn’t suffering, she didn’t go through any great loss, and it was only her hair. Cancer sufferers lose their hair and some don’t get it back,” Michelle said.  The Level Two referee, who has been involved in the sport as a player and a referee for over four years, has received great support from the Touch Football community.Francis’ refereeing abilities have recently been recognised with induction into the New South Wales Touch Association Talented Referees Youth Squad. However, it is her endeavour off the field that is sure to raise public awareness for what is an ongoing and very serious problem that affects many people. New South Wales Touch Association Administration Manager Kylie Hearne is full of praise for Francis’ initiative and commitment to the worthy cause.“We have all been touched by this insidious disease in one way or another. Last year as a Touch community we lost Mick Johnson, and earlier this year Matt Essey to cancer. It’s awesome that someone as young as Francis is taking the lead and realizing that it’s a disease that affects the old and the young and that we can all play a part in helping fight against it… Francis had the most beautiful long hair, so it’s great that she had no qualms in doing this, it’s incredibly selfless and we’re all pretty proud of her for doing it. It would be great if the Touch community got right behind her and helped raise as much money as possible,” Ms. Hearne said.World’s Greatest Shave has raised in excess of $55 million in the past eight years. The funds go to supporting patients and families living with leukaemia, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. It also assists in providing a range of services including education, transportation and counselling. Francis’ contribution will undoubtedly have a great benefit to many people. She said that getting involved with the World’s Greatest Shave was definitely worthwhile because there is no real downside. “I’m not missing the hair. It feels great actually. I love helping people. The money will go to helping kids that are sick. I haven’t missed out on anything, I lost some hair, but it’ll grow back.” Only a month after lopping her “do”, Francis is already planning to shave again. “I was actually thinking of doing it again at the end of the year because it’s actually growing quite fast. I just love it, it feels great.”Money can be contributed to Francis’ tally until the end of the year. If you would like to donate visit www.worldsgreatestshave.com – go to Sponsor, follow the links and enter Francis Wood.The up-and-coming whistleblower would like others to take a message from her actions. “Get out there; try new things and new experiences in life. This has been a great experience for me. It’s been fun, and it’s great to feel like you are helping people in some small way,” Francis said.last_img read more

They looked to carry that momentum with them as they took on Penn State on Tuesday night, but fell shortThe Nittany Lions quickly brought the Buckeyes back to reality, scoring on their very first shot in the first minute of the game en route to a 4-2 victory over OSU.The game was a tale of two very different halves, the first of which was all Penn State.Just 47 seconds into the match, the Nittany Lions were able to find the back of the net on a shot by senior midfielder Mason Klerks from 19 yards out on an assist from senior forward Connor Maloney.Both Klerks and Maloney played an extensive role in Penn State’s dominating first period.In the 26th minute, Klerks would put one through again on a header off a free kick from Maloney, his second goal of the night and second of the season.Maloney would finish with three assists and a goal, coming on the strength of a penalty kick in the 28th minute.After the first 45 minutes of play, Penn State held a 4-0 lead, despite OSU having the advantage in shots at 7-5 and corner kicks at 7-0.In the second half, the Buckeyes were able to start to put things together.In the 66th minute, senior defender Austin Bergstrom was able to bury a penalty kick to get the Buckeyes on the board, his first goal of the season.Ohio State was again able to beat Penn State’s freshman goalkeeper Arie Ammann when sophomore midfielder Abdi Mohamed placed a nice arching shot into the left of the net from 25 yards out.In the end, the Buckeyes comeback efforts would not be enough to erase their early deficit. They outshot Penn State 12-7 with an 8-1 advantage in corner kicks, but walked away with their fifth loss of the yearIt was a rough match for Ohio State redshirt freshman goalkeeper Parker Siegfried, who before the match was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.
