Photo: Rob Gronkowski shaves head for cancer charity event

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is well-known for his free spirit and frat boy partying, but he is actually a genuinely well-intentioned, charitable guy.

Gronkowski showed that when he shaved his head in front of a crowd at the One Mission Cancer Buzz Off at Gillette Stadium over the weekend.

“This is just an unbelievable event,” Gronkowski said, via “Just seeing kids, what they’re going through, puts a feeling in you that you want to help them out. You want to raise awareness for all the kids going through the hard times, the struggles, to know that there’s someone there at all times for them.

“It’s an honor to be here. Every single year, I put it on my calendar, to make sure I’m here at my event. It’s always a blast.”

You can check out some of the photos from the event below:

Kudos to Gronk for going above and beyond his call of duty. He’s one of the more energetic players in the league, but one that you have to love for what he does off the field.
