November has become known as “Movember” over the last decade or so to many of us. If you combine mustache with November, you get Movember.
This term was created by The Movember Foundation.
“The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.” Here is information on their funding strategy.
Throughout the month of November, there are great ways for us to raise awareness and fundraise for men’s health issues for The Movember Foundation.
The majority of BALI Construction’s employees are men, so we really thought it was a great idea for us to participate in Movember!
To partipate in Movember, we have created a fundraising team . Also, the men of BALI Construction are growing mustaches for 30 days to raise awareness and be walking, talking billboards for men’s health. The women of BALI Construction are taking the MOVE challenge: moving for at least 30 minutes every day for the 30 days of Movember.
Check our Facebook and Instagram pages for photo updates of the BALI Construction men with their mustaches. Be on the look out for a Tom Selleck mustache and maybe even a handlebar mustache. The guys are having fun growing their mustaches for Movember! For many of them, this is their first mustache ever.
This is our first year participating in Movember and our goal is to raise $400! Please take a moment to visit our fundraising team page. We greatly appreciate your donations !
We are excited for the opportunity to raise money for men’s health and have a friendly office competition at the same time.
Thank you from the BALI Construction team
