“Last year, I promised to shave my head if I reached $1,000 in funds raised,” said Mulka, “I ended up hitting over $1,400 in funds raised. I knew I had to up the ante this year to bring attention to a cause I truly believe in.”
Mulka has been volunteering with the American Cancer Society since 2007, when his father was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma. Although his father lost the battle a short year later, Mulka continues to try and bring attention to the cause.
He states that he struggled to think of his idea for this year. By strange coincidence, the movie he is emulating was on television when the idea stuck. “You never know where ideas will come from,” adds Mulka.

Mulka is also contributing to the cause via his new venture, Biggest Bark Marketing Solutions. The marketing and social media management firm is donating 10% of their proceeds to the American Cancer Society.
