Movember is in the final stretch!
This is the time when the SPPH Movembers need your support the most. The itchiness of a partially grown 'stache may have passed, but the thrill is also starting to pale. Morning shaves have been replaced with the need to remove dried in food, and that light at the end of the tunnel just seems to flicker lightly.
Yes, this is the time when SPPH Movember team leads Mike Marin and Alden Blair, and faculty members such as Gary Poole need your compliments, more than ever. So next time you see them, tell them how wonderful their moustaches. Use words like 'debonaire' 'dapper' or 'manly' (not 'sketchy', 'ridiculous' or 'porn-stache.)
After all, these heroic men have already raised over $1,000 for prostate cancer research this month! They also came in 2nd at the Boundary Bay Moustache Marathon! You go, men!
Further supporting the SPPH Movember Team:
We mentioned the Team's need for constant compliments and reassurance... Offerings of moustache wax and 'stache grooming products would also be nice.
Spotting them a pint or a java would not go unappreciated...
But the BEST way to support them is to make a donation to either the team as a whole, or to individual members through the Team's site at Movember Canada.
Starting Movember 1st men commit to growing the most amazing moustache possible, be it the 'sheriff,' 'handlebar,'Dali,' or one of many other types. At the start of the month men shave their facial hair and agree not to shave their moustache again for the next 30 days.
During this time they seek sponsors to help encourage them along and fund prostate cancer research. They also use any and all inquiries into their moustaches to help spur discussion about often less talked about issues in men's health. Last year over $22.3 million dollars was raised in Canada alone during Movember!
For more details, please talk to a member of the SPPH team about sponsoring them, email Alden, or visit the Movember Canada site.
