Movember is catching on in Princeton

More people have joined the Princeton Movember movement.

Chris Morphy, an employee from Princeton Weyerhaeuser initiated “Team Weyerhauser” to raise awareness and funding to support men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.

The team registered on the Movember and Sons website and began their quest at the beginning of November.

A team from Copper Mountain Mine has joined the movement and to further supplement the cause, Eddy from the Brown Bridge Pub is sponsoring a dinner to wind up the event.

The dinner will take place at the Brown Bridge Pub on Dec. 1. There are 100 tickets at $20 each. All proceeds raised will be donated to the Movember Canada movement.

Supporting and donating to the cause is easy to do. Donations to individual members of a team or to a team as a whole can be made via credit card or pay pal on the site.

Visit or google search “Movember Canada.” In the search members bar, type in Weyerhaeuser or Copper Mountain Mine to find the team or team member of your choice, watch their progress and make your donation.
