Principal dies hair pink

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The March of Dimes "March for Babies" was scheduled this weekend. They had to reschedule the event for May 8th due to weather, but that didn't stop 1 local elementary school from showing their support.

The principal of Rush Elementary agreed to sport an unusual hair color Friday as part of a fund-raising challenge for the March of Dimes. He told the kids if the boys won he would dye his hair blue, and if the girls did he would dye it pink. The girls won the competition, but everyone had a good time.

"Like I explained to the kids today, the act of giving is what's important and makes them feel good. Try to enjoy it, and I want them to have that for their entire life," said Principal Bob Wood. 

To show their support, the kindergarten class that raised the most money also dyed their hair pink.
