A great idea to celebrate Movember

PLEASE NOTE: I AM POSTING THIS FOR A FRIEND, I AM NOT PARTICIPATING

During Movember (the month formerly known as November) I'll be growing a Mo (slang for Moustache). That's right, I'm bringing the Mo back because I'm passionate about men's health and the fight against prostate cancer. Why?

Every year, around 22,300 Canadian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 4,300 die of the disease, making it the number one cancer threat to Canadian men.
Men are far less healthy than women. The average life expectancy of males is 5 years less than females.
To sponsor my Mo please go to http://www.movember.com/ca/donate, enter my registration number which is 83497 and your credit card details. Or you can sponsor me by cheque made payable to the "Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada" clearly marking the donation as being for my Registration Number: 83497. Please mail cheques to: Movember, 145 Front Street East, Suite 306, Toronto, ON M5A 1E3 Canada. All donations over $20 are automatically issued with a tax deductible receipt. Any donation, no matter what size, makes a difference. So whether it’s $1 or $100, please make a contribution to this very worthy cause.

As an added bonus, you’ll support me looking like an idiot at work for like four weeks. And who doesn’t want to pay good money to see that! Just think…Graeme will have a moustache in briefings, in staff meetings, talking about serious things on the phone with concerned stakeholders…think of the comedic possibilities!

All donations are made directly to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of Canada who will use the funds to create awareness and fund research for those men who suffer from prostate cancer.

Movember culminates at the end of the month at the Gala Partés. These glamorous and groomed events will see Tom Selleck and Borat look-a-likes battle it out for their chance to take home the prestigious Man of Movember title. If you would like to be part of this great night you'll need to purchase a Gala Parté ticket.

Thanks for your support

Graeme
