MOvember Season 2011 Begins

Don't be scared, starting #MOvember early So it begins again – MOvember the movement to change the face of men’s health and rais funds for prostate cancer research by offering our clean shaven faces to grow mustaches throughout the month.

This is my third year with MOvember and it still doesn’t get any easier shaving off the goatee and being clean shaven. I don’t recognize myself in the mirror and hate looking at myself much like us men hate having to go for that physical ever year, luckily there is now a blood test for it.

We’ve lost some many great people to prostate cancer this year. Both our loved blogger Derek K. Miller and Jack Layton who lead the NDP in our countries past election. It truly is because of their courage and fight with the disease that I’m doing what I’m doing. My clean shaven face is so small in comparison.

This year I’m part of a bigger picture, our company; Marketwire & Sysomos, is participating country wide and I’m the captain of our Marketwire & Sysomos Team Canada West. My team is small with only 3 of us participating – Marc Boudreau, Jay Cloutier and myself.

You can sponsor our team or sponsor us individual and every dollar pledged is another hair on our lovely upper lips as well as a dollar to fund research for Prostate Cancer Canada.

As usual I’ll be updating throughout the month so come back and visit often to see our progress. What mustache I’ll grow this year is still undecided.
