Ready for Movember!Posted: 31 October 2011
As of tomorrow morning,
November Movember 1, my upper lip will become a razor-free zone as I sign up for my first Movember (link to Canadian site). Movember is a movement that started in Australia and has spread around the world to raise funds for and awareness in men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer. All through the month, as the mustache grows, I will trim and style it as needed to change up the look, and hopefully generate some conversation about prostate cancer and men’s health generally. It is an issue for me personally because my grandfather has died from prostate cancer. Ever since, I have run at Harry’s Spring Run-off (2011 race report), which is also a fundraiser for prostate cancer research.
Please donate and support Movember! I also take requests for specific mustache styles, if that’s an enticement to give. I have a specialized space to donate online is at http://mobro.co/ebucad. You can also contact me if you want to donate offline.
I will be taking pictures of my mustache throughout the month, through my twitter and flickr, and here too. This should be fun! Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s mustaches as well. Happy Movember!
