Space 07 Salon is Cutting for a Cause

Typically getting your haircut is quite a self-serving experience. Those of you who are familiar with Stockton’s famous, or rather not so famous, indie rock group Pavement might recall the "Cut Your Hair" lyrics "Darling won’t you go and cut your hair…do you really think it’s gonna make any change." It dawned on me that not very often you can get a haircut and can actually be impacting someone else or your own community.

This Sunday, April 18, from 11 AM-5 PM Space 07 Salon (located at 1421 R Street, Sacramento, CA 95814) will be hosting a cut-a-thon featuring 25 of the finest hairstylists in Sacramento.   Salon cuts are $25 and barber shop cuts are $15.  The event will also include a raffle and silent auction as well.  All proceeds go directly to the fundraising efforts of Team Space 07 in their quest to raise $30,000 for HIV/AIDS organizations in the inland Northern CA region.

Space 07 Salon owner Ken Schultz is one of many long term HIV survivors here in Sacramento.  He believed he would go years ago.  He is motivated by the fact that he is still alive and wants to support CARES, one of the primary beneficiaries of the NorCal AIDS Challenge taking place next month.  When asked about his involvement with the charity bike ride, Schultz expresses his reasons for his commitment to expanding the Cause and how he fell in love with cycling. "Five years ago I rode NCAC. Road cycling was a new adventure for me. Now it has become more of a passion. I see it as a spiritual place. Riding with NorCal gives me an opportunity to reminisce and honor those loved ones we have lost to HIV/AIDS over the years. I also get to celebrate living, being alive and concentrating on the joy in life with some of the best friends that I have today."

Schultz has made the cut-a-thon quite an inclusive event by bringing in stylists outside of his own business to support the Cause.  He is also taking quite the initiative in helping to expand NCAC by unveiling Team Space 07 in May. Composed of nearly 20 riders, some new and some veterans, the team will join a community of individuals who have helped raise over $700,000 for HIV/AIDS agencies throughout the greater Sacramento area since 2005.

Schultz recognizes how there are so many bicyclists and cycling clubs in the region but not enough of them know about the NorCal AIDS Challenge. "This ride really needs to grow. I totally underestimated NCAC. It is not as much about the exercise and the physical challenge but more about the positive energy that is generated. There is a good message about hope associated with the ride and the few of us long term HIV survivors involved want to put more positive energy out into the universe and promote this wonderful event."

So venture out to Space 07 and get a fresh new look for Spring. Just imagine all of the flattering comments that can go to your head and you can take pride in knowing that the loss of your locks went towards a very good Cause. So even if it is not a must, cut yout hair and be a difference maker to your community.
