Last year, Canadians showed true dedication and pride with over 254,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas participating. Together we raised $42 million, making Canada the top fundraising nation in the world. Making us proud Canada! Those funds go towards programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partner, Prostate Cancer Canada, in the areas of prostate cancer awareness and education, survivorship and research.
This year, Movember is proud to announce that it will address both prostate cancer and male mental health with the funds raised. Mental health is a new addition for Movember Canada and a critical issue for men with one in five men experiencing a mental health issue this year.
Anyone interested in joining the team this year please let me or Kerry know by October 1st at 1pm. Thank you – Chris Harlow
