On Tuesday some brave folks got outside in the cold with freshly shaved heads.

The group Love Your Melon brought its head shave bus to the University of St. Thomas in honor of Love Your Melon Day.     

They invited people to shave their heads on site to raise awareness about childhood cancer.
Love Your Melon also gave away hats to patients at University of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald house.
They also presented a check to the Children's Cancer Research Fund.
