Video: Rob Gronkowski shaves head for cancer awareness

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski may be known as a party boy or a wild child who loves to go out and enjoy his life, but he is also a very visible figure in the Boston community when it comes to his charity work.

This weekend, Gronkowski participated in another charity event that resulted in the star NFL player shaving his head.

Gronkowski’s charity effort was with The Buzz Off for Kids with Cancer foundation which asks people to shave their heads to “show of solidarity and support for those courageously fighting cancer.”

Gronkowski, along with 1,000 other people, took the challenge this weekend in Massachusetts.

Once Gronk’s head was shaved, he decided to pick up some clippers to return the favor for other willing participants.
