Adam and the gang are growing out their moustaches to support the Movember movement. Started in 2003 by a couple of mates in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has emerged and established itself as legitimate charity. It has raised a total of over $301 million (CAD). Last year alone, it raised $125.7 million to support prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives – $41.9 million raised by Canadians! That’s exactly one third of the global initiative.
The majority of funds raised in Canada were donated to our men’s health partner, Prostate Cancer Canada, to fund catalytic research and clinical trials infrastructure that leads to significantly improved diagnostic and prognostic tests and treatments to reduce the burden of prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer takes more lives annually than breast cancer; let’s not waste any more time guys!We all remember NHL players supporting the cause on the ice, but this year we won’t have that support due to the lockout. Let’s not let it slow us down! It’s easy to register to become a Mo Bro or Mo Sista: follow the link below and start accepting donations from friends, family, and colleagues. For my Mo Sistas, you don’t need to grow a moustache to participate – and you shouldn’t. Simply create an account to receive donations. https://www.movember.com/ca/register/
Can’t participate (due to work or lack of masculinity – I kid), no problem! To donate, just follow the same link above, click the ‘Donate’ tab, and search for the Mo Bro or Mo Sista you are looking for. Check their profile, see how they’re doing, and send ‘em some cash.
In 2011, over 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world got on board. We want to make that number even larger; so that’s why we’re doing it here are FPM3. Feel up to it? Well good news – FPM3 is running a contest on our Facebook page.
