Take The MORA Challenge

GROW YOUR HAIR WITH MORA (Mississippi Organ Recovery Agency)

Thanks for participating in Great Lengths sponsored by St. Dominic Cancer Services! Your gift of hair is such a selfless act and we truly thank you for your commitment to help restore the personal esteem and confidence of persons facing and undergoing chemotherapy due to cancer. To help women, WLBT is partnering St. Dominic's Cancer Services, the Mississippi Institute of Aesthetics, Nails & Cosmetology and the American Cancer Society on a campaign that encourages people to grow, cut and donate 8" of their hair to create real-hair wigs for women who've lost their hair due to cancer.


Select a point person for your team to serve as the key contact and spokesperson.  That person is responsible for:

  • making sure all members are signed up on WLBT.com.  Each member of your team must sign up individually on the Great Lengths home page so that they will be included in the overall count for Great Lengths.  Upon completion of the registration process, each member will receive a certificate that they can print and take to the address listed to redeem their free gift from St. Dominic Cancer Services.
  • any interviews that may be conducted as a part of your team's involvement in the Great Length's campaign.
  • serving as spokesperson in the event your team is called upon to appear in a testimonial for the campaign.
  • forwarding their contact information to rwright@wlbt.com.  All team correspondence will be relayed to the point persons only.
  • forwarding a group photo to rwright@wlbt.com with first and last names of each member as they appear in order on the picture.  Your email will serve as permission for Raycom/WLBT to use its likeness for all Great Lengths promotional products.

All participants will be listed on WLBT.COM & we personally invite your group to come to the hair cutting celebration on Monday, 2/28/11 from 6am-6:30pm at the Mississippi Institute of Aesthetics, Nails & Cosmetology at 507 Springridge Road, Suite G in Clinton, Mississippi. 

For hair cutting appointments prior to 2/28/11, please call the MS Institute of Aesthetics, Nails and Cosmetology at 601-925-1344, Tuesday - Friday from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. The salon is open to hair donors on Thursdays & Fridays leading up to the event. Hair will be lightly styled after the cut at no charge if you donate hair.  For more information about the MORA GROUP CHALLENGE, call (601) 960-4493 or you may email Renae Wright, Project Coordinator, at rwright@wlbt.com.
