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?
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!
