Image and Angles Hair Salon and Urban Oasis Hair Salon & Day Spa are raising funds and demonstrating their support for Shianne Gronen, a young woman born and raised in Creston heading to the 2018 Junior Judo World Championship in Nassau Bahamas.

Gronen began her judo training at the Creston Judo Club. Two years ago Gronen decided to move to Lethbridge, Alberta to train full time, followed by a recent move to Montreal where she trains six days a week at the Canadian Nation Judo Centre.
