Gymnasts to appear on NBC 'Today' show

WAHPETON, N.D.

WAHPETON, N.D. - Thirteen gymnasts and a coach will get their hair cut on NBC's "Today" show on Thursday.

Patty Moses, gym coordinator for Three Rivers Gymnastics in Wahpeton, said she and the gymnasts are cutting their hair to donate to Locks of Love.

Each will get at least 10 inches cut off to donate to the nonprofit that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children suffering from long-term medical hair loss.

The gymnasts, in kindergarten through sixth grade, are from Wahpeton, Breckenridge, Minn., Hankinson, N.D., and Rothsay, Minn.

Moses said team members wanted to do something to give back because they've received so much support from the community.
