Erik’s Movember 2011Nov 8th, 2011
It’s the middle of Movember, the month formerly known as November, which is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. I joined the movement and have donated my upper lip to the cause for 30 days (check the link for visual proof… just don’t do it before or during breakfast because it may ruin the most important meal of the day for you… yeah, it’s that bad!!!!). My Mo has sparked conversations and has generated some laughs (because I look like a freak!!!); all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for prostate cancer.
Why am I so passionate about men’s health (besides the obvious…. I am a man)?
* On average men live 4-5 years less than women
* 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
* 25,500 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year in Canada
I invite you to support me by donating at http://mobro.co/ErikMuckle (even if you don’t plan on donating, check out the site for ‘stache updates. Feel free to make fun of my sad excuse for a ‘stache……I can take it).
Any donation will help. $5, $10, $25, $50, $100……..You get the idea.
You can even go old skool and write a cheque payable to “Movember Canada”, reference my name and Registration Number 1593214 and send it to: Movember Canada, 119 Spadina Avenue, PO Box 65, Toronto, ON M5T 2T2
All donations are tax deductible.
We only have 15 days left to grow Mos and raise awareness and fund, so please join the ride. Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partner, the Prostate Cancer Canada, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.
