Movember 2021: Day 1
Updated: Jan 24, 2022
Gray & Fick is joining in the Movember movement and will be participating in a number of ways throughout the month.
To kick things off we had an auction for the privilege of shaving both Osman and Steve's moustache off. Osman has had a moustache since he was 15 years old and Steve has had a moustache for 45 years! We raised $400 in the office auction to donate towards the cause and that's just the beginning!
The Movember movement is the leading charity changing the face of men's health. Their focus is on mental health, suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. They have taken on 1250+ men's health projects, across 23 countries, over 18 years. Movember is aiming to reduce the number of men dying too young by 25% by 2030.
“Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it's rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We can't afford to stay silent."
Ways that Gray & Fick is participating:
Grow a Mo Save a Bro!
Steve, Osman, Trevor, Jason, Dylan and Ryan will be growing a Mo this month! We'll be posting weekly updates on our socials so be sure to check out those mo's as they come in.
Move for Movember:
Corey, Ryan, Dylan, and Rachel will be participating in Move for Movember. They will be running or walking 60km over the month and tracking it on their page. That's 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.
Mo Your Own Way:
Rachel can't quite grow a moustache but will be donating 10" of her hair to Chai Lifeline who makes wigs for children in Canada experiencing hair loss due to illness. For added fun, the G&F team member who raises the most will make the cut!
