Harness racing announcer Evan Loucks will have his head shaved in Peterborough to raise money for children with cancer.

FRASERVILLE, Ontario . . . Kawartha Downs' race announcer Evan Loucks will help try to carve out a new Guinness World Record by having his head shaved May 16 at the Peterborough airport.

All donations to the attempt to break the record for the most heads shaved simultaneously will support the Cops For Cancer Pedal For Hope charity that benefits children suffering from cancer. To donate in Loucks' name, visit: www.cancer.ca/headshaverecord and select his name in the "find a participant" link. People may also sign up on the website to participate in the world record attempt. They will need a partner to shave their head. The Guinness World Records website says the current record for most heads shaved simultaneously is 210 set in Mason, Ohio in August of 2014.

A few years ago, Loucks participated in Movember to raise awareness for prostate cancer. At the end of the month, he participated in a fundraising night at Kawartha Downs where his mustache was shaved off by staff.

Kawartha Downs (http://ontariohorseracing.ca/Find-Your-Track/Ontario-Racetracks/Kawartha-Downs.aspx) will open its 18-card 2015 harness racing meet on May 30 and race live every Saturday night at 7 p.m. (except Sept. 19) through Oct. 3. The opening night card will feature a ball cap giveaway honouring leading driver Gord Brown.
