We’re into the last few hours of Movember 2013 now. I have to admit something: while having a ‘stache is little annoying (especially for someone who isn’t used to having one), I’m kind of sad about parting ways with it.
It really was exciting to grow a ‘stache over the last few weeks and be part of such a great community. As I’ve said, beyond the fundraising aspect, it’s a great conversation starter to raise awareness about issues affecting men’s health. I previously mentioned how a family member was diagnosed with prostate cancer last year, and that I’ve seen friends and family struggle with mental health issues. It really brought the issue to men’s health to the forefront for me.
In addition to raising funds, I wanted to open up conversations about these issues and encourage other men (including myself) to look after their health. And thanks to all of your donations, likes, shares and comments (both online and offline), I feel like I’ve accomplished that.
If you still want to support my Movember campaign and help me make a difference in men’s health, this is the final day to do so. Simply visit my mo space.
Once again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all for your support!
