ROSEBURG, Ore. -- You may have seen a blue mohawk bobbing up and down the aisles of the Garden Valley Walgreens in Roseburg, but that's no punk rock star. It's K.C.
She's a Walgreens employee, and a member of the company's March of Dimes team.
She and her coworkers had been raising money for the April 28 event.
K.C. says they were doing a pretty good job, but she wanted to give them some incentive to raise even more money, so she told her boss she had an idea: If the team raised $1,000, they could do whatever they wanted with her hair.
"He says, 'Really, you want to do that?' And I said, 'Sure, it's just hair.' It's for the children, that's what it's all about. It's for the children," she said.
The Walgreen's team sprung into action, quickly hitting their goal.
"I came in the next day with a blue mohawk," K.C. said.
Store manager Luke Hatfield says she's definitely surprised a few customers. "I think a few odd looks to be honest with you, until they actually ask her why she's got the blue mohawk."
K.C. says that when she explains the reason behind the hair, she's had really positive feedback.
She said some people have even donated after hearing her story, and that's all she wants. Becoming visibly emotional, K.C. told KPIC News, "It's for the children. We can't help them in any way other than providing money for them, to maybe help make a better life for them."
The Walgreen's team has already raised almost $1,500, which is $500 more than their goal, and they still have two weeks to go.
If you want to help K.C. and the whole Walgreens team in their quest to raise money for the March of Dimes, you can stop by either location from now until April 26.
