LEESBURG, GA (WALB) -

A South Georgia police chief battling cancer is cutting his hair for a good cause. Leesburg Police Chief Charles Moore has been on chemo for colon cancer for three months and is going to get a buzz cut at the "Swinging for a Cause" Co-ed softball tournament this weekend.

More than 1,000 tickets have already been sold. Two winners will be drawn to do the cutting to benefit the Georgia Special Olympics.  

"If my loss can benefit one of these children or some children going to the Special Olympics then I'm all for it," said Chief Moore.    

"You got friends that have family members that entered into the Special Olympics and this is a way to help raise money for that opportunity to help them on their cost on travel," said Sheriff Reggie Rachals.    

The Tournament begins at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Kinchafoonee Sports Complex. Chief Moore's buzz cut starts at 11 a.m. , and tickets are on sale for one dollar. You can purchase tickets to cut Chief Moore's hair at the Lee County Ace Hardware, Bank of Lee County, Janie's Restaurant, Lee County Sheriff's Office, and the Lee County Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds from the game and the haircut will benefit the Georgia Special Olympics.
