Thank You to our Canadian Mo Bros and Sistas!
TORONTO, December 1, 2016 -
Prostate Cancer Canada congratulates the more than 500,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas worldwide who participated in this year's Movember campaign. Here in Canada, enthusiasm was on display in many forms, from spirited move challenges like 24-hour runs and epic host events like Suits & Staches in Toronto, to the first ever online host event of 24-hour gaming streams with EA Sports and over 60,000 official moustaches.
Funds raised for prostate cancer will go a long way towards supporting breakthrough research and support services that will tangibly improve the quality and length of men's lives.
“Prostate Cancer Canada is proud to add 2016 to its longstanding men’s health partnership with Movember,” said Rocco Rossi, President and CEO of Prostate Cancer Canada. “Thanks to the incredible fundraising efforts of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across the country, Movember will again provide a substantial contribution to the advancement of prostate cancer research and support services for men and their families living with the disease.”
