As Wagga prepares to take part in the Relay For Life this weekend, one young girl is making the most of her last few days with long hair.
Layla Bellany has spent the last year growing her locks out in order to make the big chop and raise money for cancer.
"I'll be cutting off about 10-11 inches off, so that will raise money as well as donating my hair to make wigs for people who have lost their hair through cancer," the 11-year-old said.
"I don't need all of my hair and some people don't have any so I thought it would be a good idea."
Miss Bellany has been involved in Relay For Life for the past few years alongside the Bidgee Dragon Boat Club's team, with a personal motivation driving her generosity.
"Both of my grandfathers died from cancer," she said.
"One had brain cancer, he died a few years ago but my other grandfather only passed away last month from Myelofibrosis."
With a goal of $1000, Miss Bellany is within arms reach of her fundraising target having raised $935 so far.
"A part from my hair, I've also made a heap of pom poms this year, so far about 60 of the big ones and then making a start on the smaller ones," she said.
"We give those out for a gold coin donation on the night, and then at our stall we also offer nail painting to raise money."
Relay For Life will begin at 9:30am this Saturday at Connelly Oval, finishing 24 hours later.
