On Movember 1st, our fine firefighters, with a clean-shaven face began their journey. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as “Mo Bros”, will groom, trim and wax their way into the archives of fine moustachery…
DID YOU KNOW:
- Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian men in 2012:
- An estimated 26,500 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 4,000 will die of it.
- On average, 73 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer every day.
- One in 7 men will develop prostate cancer during his lifetime and one in 28 will die of it.
WE ARE NOT WILLING TO SETTLE FOR THOSE ODDS!
The Metchosin Volunteer Firefighters will be supporting Movember with a variety of fundraising events throughout the month. We invite you to come and join us.
All proceeds to the METCHOSIN FIREFIGHTERS MOVEMBER FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN in our efforts to raise awareness & show support of the often ignored issue of men’s health – specifically prostate cancer.
