Locks of Love - Really Awesome

Wanted to pass along some really cool info about Audrey Feld, the sister of my honored teammate Reagan Feld. Audrey went to the hair salon this morning and participated in the Locks of Love program. For those of you who are not familar with it:
Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. We meet a unique need for children by using donated hair to create the highest quality hair prosthetics. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. The prostheses we provide help to restore their self-esteem and their confidence, enabling them to face the world and their peers.

Pretty cool. Especially for a little kid to do. Pictures are below. (Also note that Audrey's holding the bear of Reagan's that rode around Tahoe with me on my first ride and the medal that Team gave her!!! :-)
