FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Abingdon Police Participate in “No Shave November” to Benefit Local High School Student Battling Cancer
The officers of the Abingdon Police Department are forgoing their razors for the month of November in favor of facial hair and making a $25 contribution to a local high school student who is battling cancer.
Officers participating in the No Shave November campaign have been approved to grow beards, which must be groomed and properly maintained, throughout the month. This is a temporary change to the department policy which prohibits beards for officers. Participating officers must make a minimum of $25 contribution to Connor Crushes Cancer, a go fund me page established to offset expenses for the family of Connor Bartz. Connor is a senior at Abingdon High School, and is fighting cancer for a second time. He is undergoing experimental treatment in Cincinnati that includes immunotherapy every three weeks. This means lots of gas, hotels, food, and medical expenses for Connor and his family. 100% of funds raised will be sent directly to the Bartz family from Go Fund Me.
In an effort to provide greater assistance to the Bartz family, the Chief is encouraging officers to individually raise more money for this cause to be donated at the end of November, 2018. Throughout the month, officers, and their facial hair will be highlighted on our social media accounts to keep our followers apprised of their progress. In addition, our followers will be afforded an opportunity to choose the best facial hair at the conclusion of the month. The officer selected will be allowed to keep his beard until January 1, 2019.
The Abingdon Police Department challenges our community to join us in participating in No Shave November by making a donation to the Bartz family. The go fund me page can be accessed at: www.gofundme.com/connor-crushe... 
. We will also accept donations for the Connor Crushes Cancer fund at the Abingdon Police Department located at 425 West Main Street.
