Tom Brady proved once again he’s the greatest after he helped raise millions of dollars Thursday to fight cancer by getting his head shaved.
The New England Patriots’ quarterback was unveiled as the surprise guest at the annual fundraiser for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Saving by Shaving event. Brady showed up and the crowd went wild.
The group had promised a guest from the Boston Sports landscape and what a great surprise he was. Brady was joined by Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, Red Sox President Sam Kennedy and others who agreed to get their heads buzzed in exchange for donations to help fight cancer.
A short time later, the Patriots’ QB showed off his new haircut with a post on Instagram.
The caption next to the post read, “They call me Buzzy… Tom Buzzy. What a fun #SavingByShaving event today. It was an honor to join the fun and support @DanaFarber and all the great work they do! Thanks for the invite @coachhale5 (Rob Hale) and thank you @piniandco for the haircut!”
According to a report on the Patriots website, Brady and others helped raise more than $7 million for cancer research at the fifth annual event.
