This year I’ll be participating in my second-ever Movember to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues. You may recall I was the Captain of Buckeye Interactive’s grow team in 2013, and this year I’m helping lead the charge for 10up’s MoTeam!
For the uninitiated, Movember is an annual fundraiser wherein men, starting clean-shaven, grow mustaches over the month of November to raise awareness for men’s health issues. Along the way, we raise money to help fund research for prostate and testicular cancers and support programs promoting strong mental health and physical fitness.
This year, Movember has also introduced the “MOVE” campaign, where anyone – regardless of mustache-growing ability or desire – can commit to get up and be active every day in November. This fits nicely with my on-going weight loss goals, so in addition to growing I’ll be especially active over the next 30 days.
How can you get involved? It’s not too late to sign up to join Movember, whether it’s to grow, MOVE, or join me in doing it all! You can also help support your favorite Mo’ Bros by donating to the Team10up Movember team (or its individual, handsome members ;)).
As it’s becoming something of a tradition to do a montage of different mustaches as I shave down, I decided to use my daughter Emily this year to help re-create father/daughter photos throughout time:
