Megan Alatini Backs New MOTAT Funrazor

Television and music personality Megan Alatini, who reinvented herself this year after shaving her trademark hair for Child Cancer, will be proudly showing off her still-cropped look as host of the MOTAT funrazor event on Sunday 4 November.

Alatini, who is now a passionate Child Cancer Foundation supporter, is inviting members of the public to join her at MOTAT as they create a unique 1950s themed funrazor event to help raise a target amount of $50,000. Alatini, who was known for her braids during her TrueBliss girl band era in the late ‘90s and more recently her extensions, is still enjoying her short look and would love to see people of all ages and backgrounds join her at MOTAT.

“I understand that several children and their parents have already signed up,” she says. It is so inspiring to see many diverse people stepping up to make a difference for children with cancer,” she says.

“Three children are diagnosed with cancer in New Zealand each week. The Child Cancer Foundation can make a difference in reducing the isolation and impact of the diagnosis through coordinated support services.

“For example, every diagnosed child receives free books and toys and an introduction kit, more than 3,000 hospital meals vouchers are funded each year and more than 4,000 Family Support visits were made,” Alatini says.

The MOTAT funrazor on Sunday, November 4, will feature fun activities and entertainment guided by Alatini. Hairdressers from ‘Room 104’ salon have come on board and kindly donated their hairdressing services to the event.

If you or a family member would like to sign up to support children with cancer please contact Hema Prashar, Participants and their support crew will receive complimentary passes to MOTAT for the day. (Limited to 2 adults and 4 children), generously supplied by MOTAT, who are partnering CCF in this event.

About the Child Cancer Foundation:

The Child Cancer Foundation aims to reduce the impact of cancer by offering support services 365 days of the year, ensuring children and their families are supported, informed and well cared for at every stage of their journey.

The Foundation receives no funding from the government so the Child Cancer Foundation relies on the generosity of New Zealanders to fund support services which children with cancer and their families need during their journey.
