Saturday, November 1st marked the beginning of MOVEMBER 2014 and Brightspark has joined the fund raising effort.
Movember began in 2003 when 30 friends in Australia, decided to bring the Moustache back into style. They chose to grow their Mo's through the month of November renaming it Movember. The very next year and in the years to come Movember has established itself as one of the foremost fundraisers in the world for Men's Health.The month-long Movember campaign for Men’s health has an emphasis on funding for Prostate Cancer, Testicular Cancer and Men’s Mental Health research and treatment programs. Today, over 21 countries participate, 100's of millions of dollars have been raised, 770 men's health projects have been funded, and there are over 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas worldwide.
Many men die every day from illnesses that could have been treated and cured if they were caught early. My Grandfather William Irwin was one of them and I’m sure most of us have known someone who has been affected by men's health Issues. During Movember, Brightspark will be fund raising for all of the men in our office and in our lives. Some brave Brightspark Men are growing their mustaches throughout the month to rally support and those who can't are helping fund raise with their cheers and support.
