I know @MolsonTonia will do a more formal update BUT…30 days with an itchy upper lip is a mild inconvenience compared to the challenge that many men face in beating back cancer in their lives. Mo-Bros at Molson Coors in Canada stepped up this month in a big way. This awareness was also shared by a number of Mo-Sistas at Molson Coors in Canada who joined the campaign to raise awareness and funds during the month. We were also supported by the Rickard’s brand in raising public awareness for this important cause. All said and done the Molson Coors team can proudly shout out our achievement of raising over $184,000.00 to support Movember in Canada. Thanks to all of those colleagues, family, friends and business associates for taking the time to participate and or cash from your pockets to make a difference. Cheers to making a difference in men’s health and to promoting active lifestyles. @MolsonFerg

About The Campaign
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

The month of November is quickly coming to an end which signifies the end of Movember. This also means the end to all the extra moustaches that you may have spotted out and about (well that’s if those who have grown one haven’t become too comfortable with it).
Movember is an annual, month-long fundraising event that encourages Mo Bros and Mo Sistas (a Movember participant, male or female) to grow a moustache or support someone who is growing one to raise money for Prostate Cancer Research in Canada.
Prostate Cancer will claim the lives of 4,440 men in Canada this year with another 25,000 (1 in 6) being diagnosed with it. The good news is that over 90% of prostate cancer causes are curable if detected and treated in their earliest stages and that’s why many of the Mo Bro’s at Molson Coors Canada have decided to participate in fundraising or simply showing support by growing a moustache. Our employees participating in Movember have generated over $5,000 toward Prostate Cancer research which is being matched by Molson Coors Canada’s Donations Fund.
