Including the CBC's own Angela Knight and members of the CBC Do Crew — the group shed their locks at the Calgary Fire Department's southeast training academy.
The group more than tripled its initial goal of raising $40,000, finishing with a total of $140,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
The previous world record was 267 heads shaved simultaneously, set at another cancer fundraiser in Ontario last May.
