Movember—Awesome work Mo’ Bros and Sistas

Movember at OpenRoad

You may have noticed some extra dapper style around the OpenRoad office in November. We're proud to announce that our own Mo' Bros and Mo' Sistas raised a total of $3,624 for Movember men's health in November. We ranked #604 in Canada (seems appropriate for a Vancouver-based company). Well done team!

On behalf of the OpenRoad team, we'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who participated, fundraised, and donated. Additionally, all donations were matched by OpenRoad.

But I think moustaches are silly... why should I care about Movember?

Darren Gibbons and Gordon Ross raising awareness for Movember

Okay okay, so they may not be very chic, but Movember helps create awareness and raise funds for four important men's health issues, including:

  • Prostate Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Mental Health
  • Battling Physical Inactivity

Since 2003, they've raised a whopping CAD $677 million to support 832 men's health projects*. The MOVE challenge also encourages participants to take part in physical activity at least once a day, and is open to members of both genders.

In the words of Mo' Sista Kaitie Bakker:

"I have some very special men in my life that I want to make sure stay healthy for as long as possible! I'd grow a moustache in support if I could... but instead I'll just MOVE!"

Congrats Mo' OpenRoadies!
