James Seeber raised money throughout the month of March in anticipation of cutting his hair for cancer.
Seeber raised $3370 for the Canadian Cancer Society, more than triple his $1000 goal.
"It's going to be a big change, but I know it's for the good," said Seeber, who was feeling nervous about the haircut.
The Fort Saskatchewan man had been growing his hair for more than ten years and this was the first time he's shaved his head. He did so at Concrete Blonde and Barbers.
His inspiration for the initiative came after his family suffered a couple of losses to cancer in recent years, including his grandmother.
Seeber said he was surprised by the outpouring of support from the community. 
"If it were 900 dollars over the month, I'd be equally as happy," he said. "It's amazing, all of these donations have been really humbling."
Seeber was directly contacted and thanked by the Canadian Cancer Society.
