In the news: No Shave November continues until 2020 for Fire Chief

Fire Chief Theders with beard

(December 4, 2019)

No Shave November might be over, but not for Blue Ash Fire Chief Chris Theders.  

Theders challenged fire personnel to raise $1,000 for Saint Jude Children's Hospital by the end of November and if they met the goal, he would keep his beard through the end of the year. 

They raised the funds, so he posted the above picture on Twitter December 2 with the caption "No Shave November is over why still the beard? Challenged our personnel to raise $1000 for St. Jude by the end of November and I will grow beard until the New Year. Well, challenge accepted. Over $1000 raised for cancer research. Could not be more proud of our employees."
