More than three times what they set out to raise.

That's what hundreds of Calgary firefighters and many others, including the CBC Do Crew, managed to raise at a cancer fundraiser Saturday.

The goal was $40,000 but after all was said and done, $124,000 will go to the Canadian Cancer Society.

The event is hoping to break a world record — with 329 firefighters losing their locks at the same time — but confirmation will take a little time.

CBC's Do Crew got in on the action with Paul Karchut going under the clippers for a lot off the top.

The event filled the Calgary Fire Department southeast training academy.

The previous record for most heads shaved consecutively is 267 in Ontario last May. It was also a cancer fundraiser.
