Gronkowski, who plays tight end for the NFL franchise, joined in at the fifth annual Kid’s Cancer Buzz Off held at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., reported NESN. The event raises money for One Mission, which raises funds to help families that have a child suffering from pediatric cancer.

The athlete’s mom did the honors of shaving.

“I’m hyped to buzz my dome for the fourth year in a row with One Mission,” Gronkowski said in a statement. “The Kid’s Cancer Buzz-Off is an inspiring day where everyone stands together and fights the battle against cancer.”

Joining Gronkowski at the annual Kid’s Cancer Buzz Off was his teammate, wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins, former Patriots player Jermaine Wiggins and Fenway bullpen cop Officer Steve Horgan.
