Tom Brady gets buzz cut for cancer fundraiser

Tom Brady shed his longish locks for a good cause Thursday.

The New England Patriots quarterback was the mystery guest at the “Saving by Shaving” fundraiser for Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, according to The Associated Press.

Brady, whose mother Galynn Brady is now cancer-free after battling breast cancer for more than a year, showed off the results of his shearing on Instagram.

Granite Telecommunications, which holds the annual event at its Quincy, Massachusetts, headquarters, pledged to donate more than $5 million if 1,000 people shaved their heads or beards.

Among those who turned out were Brady and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker.

According to the AP, Granite Telecommunications said that it will donate $6.5 million after 1,200 people took part in the effort.
