The Movember final numbers are in!
What a month it has been. Mustache warriors around the globe have been selflessly sprouting, maintaining and rocking their upper lip trophies for the last 30 days all in order to raise awareness for men's health and prostate cancer research.
My friend Jason and I set out mid October to try and make a difference. We both were considering donating to a cause that we both were passionate about and contemplated how we could turn our $1200 in more. We enlisted the help of the Valley's finest mustache farmers and set out with the goal to make over $1200, even an extra dollar would be an improvement.
We tracked progress throughout the month, and hit up everyone and their dog for support. Named "The Duster Cluster," our team of 13 mustache cowboys fundraised all month long.
On November 29th at Shark Club Langley, Jason and I threw a wrap up party for all that participated and their supporters. It was a great night full of complimentary food, beer, games, trivia and prizes. We gave away a trip to Whistler, Shark Club GCs, half off hot shave coupons, and even Jason ended up winning an iPad, so we donated the money from that BACK into the charity.
At the start of the month, we set out to raise over $1200. The final number ended up being over $4300, over tripling what we originally set out to accomplish.
Now we want to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated this year, donated, grew in secret and to all the women in our lives for putting up with us for the last 30 days. Over $4300 is being donated to Movember and its affiliate Prostate Cancer Canada this year, thanks to the help of amazing people like you.
GROW ON! and we will be back next year!
Until next time,
