LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It was a great way to get a haircut, honor a local hero and help the community all in one.
The Nick Rodman Legacy Foundation held its first ever Cut-a-thon event Sunday afternoon. The Foundation partnered with Hive Salon Studios. Stylists cut hair for free in exchange for a donation to go towards the Foundation.
The event included a bounce house, games, a bake sale and grilled food, with the proceeds going to help the community.
The Foundation was launched in March by Rodman's wife, Ashley as a way to honor her late husband's legacy and as a way to thank the community who supported her family after his death.

Ashely told us then, Nick always wanted to help others, and loved Louisville. Creating the Foundation was a natural decision.
The next charity event will be the Nick Rodman Memorial Golf Scramble on June 8th. It starts at 7:30 am at the Sun Valley Golf Course. Teams of four are encouraged to sign up.
There are also sponsorship opportunities beginning at $100.00.
