Princeton Movember – Help them to “raise money and look good doing it.”

A group of men have banded together and joined the Movember Canada movement.

Movember, the month formerly known as November has become the month to “change the face of men’s health.” Beginning Nov. 1 men around the world shave their faces clean and then groom and grow the best and most creative moustache they can. Many men known as Mo Bros, seek sponsorships and with help and support  from the women in their lives, (Mo Sistas) raise funds for men’s health initiatives.

In Canada, the funds raised support men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.

Locally, a group of men have banded together and  joined the Movember  Canada movement. The team is registered on the Movember and Sons website.

Team Weyerhaeuser Princeton consists of 21 members. Their team motivation is to “Raise money and to look good doing it.”

On Nov. 1, all team members began their day, clean shaven. They will do their best throughout the month, to “grow a ‘stache,’ raise funds and raise awareness.

Donations to individual members of the team or to the team as a whole can be made via credit card or pay pal on the site.

Visit http://ca.movember.com or google search “Movember Canada.” In the search members bar, type in Weyerhaeuser to find the team, watch their progress and make your donation.
