 ResPunzel Success

The Resurrection Science Club hosted the 10th annual ResPunzel hair donation project and 75 participants, including students, staff and friends of Resurrection, donated a minimum of 8 inches of hair which will be used by the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program. 

The program works closely with the American Cancer Society to produce and distribute real-hair wigs, at no cost, for female cancer patients. The hair donations from Resurrection will make wigs for women who are faced with   hair loss from cancer treatment.  The ResPunzel Project began at Resurrection College Prep High School in 2007 as a project of the Science Club and in 2009 as a school-wide project. Special thanks to  volunteer stylists from Ivana DiPiero Hair Studio in Harwood Heights and Salon M in Niles.
