Canadian Luge Athlete Gets Inspirational Haircut for Kids Cancer Care

Arianne Jones hosts children from Kids Cancer Care community at Luge Track in Calgary November 1

CALGARY—It will likely go down as one of the most rewarding days at the start line of a luge track for Canadian athlete, Arianne Jones, when a group of young inspiring barbers from Kids Cancer Care community cut her hair for children with cancer on November 1 at 10:30 a.m.

The born and raised Calgarian, who is one of the top luge athletes in the world, along with many of her World Cup and Olympic teammates, will host a group of Calgary teens affected by cancer for a morning of luge and inspiration. The 22-year-old Jones will take part in a motivational presentation before inviting each teen to cut a chunk of her hair while sitting on a chair in front of the start handles on the luge track in the Ice House at WinSport’s Canada Olympic Park. Jones and the kids will then hop on a sled and take their turns heading down the icy chute.
