Champlin Brooklyn Park Academy took the competition to heart to get the most walkers from their school signed up for the Bill Gallagher 5K fundraiser. To inspire students and their families to participate, Media Specialist Tim Carlson made a promise to the students that he would shave his head if the school met the goal.

The duo agreed to shave their heads if the school turned out the highest number of walkers per capita at the elementary school level for the Bill Gallagher 5K fundraiser, which they successfully did.
