Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski shaved his head to raise awareness for pediatric cancer at a charity event.
Participating in the Kid's Cancer Buzz Off charity, Gronkowski had participating members of the charity buzz off the hair on his head, which wasn't a whole lot to begin with.
He tweeted a before and after photo on his personal twitter page:

Gronkowksi will continue his rehab this summer with a shaved head, though it will probably grow back out by the time the regular season starts — unless he keeps buzzing it.
This was certainly an important gesture from New England's top tight end to his community.
