So it’s that time of year again. Yep. Movember is knocking on our door. I am ramping up for Movember as I type this.
Last year was my first year participating and our team with a generous contribution from Colonial Volkswagen of Westborough raised nearly $2400. This year I am heading up a team. Our team name is G+ and Beyond Mobros.
So far we have 9 team members, most of which are great people I have met over the last year on Google Plus,
I am hopeful to fill out the team with about 15-20 mobros by the time November 1st hits.
For those of you what are not familiar with the Movember movement, each November men around the world who choose to participate shave clean on November 1st and grow a moustache throughout the 30 days of Movember. They do it to raise awareness for mens health issues, particularly prostate and testicular cancer. Through Movember.com you can create a “mobro Mo Space Page ” page and start or join a team . Through this page statuses can updated by participants and donations can be made.
Here is my Mo Space page for this years Movember http://us.movember.com/mospace/.
Growing a moustache is a great way to raise awareness. Last year, I had people ask, ” Dan, what’s with the moustache? ” It was a conversation started and I would always tell them that I was raising money and awareness for Prostate Cancer.
I look forward to a great movember with my team mates on G+ and Beyond Mobros and check back for updates.
Right now I am torn between going with the Ron Burgundy or the Ron Swanson.
What do you think?
