They may be struggling on the field but the Calgary Stampeders were champions in the eyes of their veteran centre yesterday. Jamie Crysdale, a 12-year veteran of the Stamps offensive line, organized a head shaving for the Kids Cancer Care Foundation and had more than 20 participants from the organization.

The cue balls raised about $10,000 for the charity, said Crysdale, who was overwhelmed by the support of his teammates and administrative staff.

The cause means plenty to Crysdale, whose three-year-old daughter Grace is recovering from leukemia.

"I can't thank my teammates enough for doing this," Crysdale said. "I didn't have to ask a lot of the guys to shave their heads today, they just did it."

Stamps president Ron Rooke, GM-head coach Matt Dunigan and too many players to list sat in the chair for charity.
