Meet The RedPeak Magnificent Mo’s
For many years now, the month formerly known as November has been known to RedPeakers as Movember. Movember fundraisers are a global community of fired up Mo Bros and Mo Sisters – aka rock stars making a difference in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. There are many ways to get involved in Movember including Move for Movember and Hosting a Mo-ment, but our favorite way to raise funds involves seeing so many of our Team Member’s faces go from clean shaven (November 1st) to magnificently mo-ustached by the end of the month.
This year Team RedPeak raised $945 for Movember.
In addition to the fundraising our Magnificent Mo’s did, we couldn’t resist adding some awards of our own to the mix. Congratulations to RedPeak’s Movember Superlatives including:
Most Robust Mo’ – Brandon Lyons, Service Supervisor
Creepiest Mo’ – Craig Kalman, Investment Director
Most Money Raised – Sammie Corchado, Multi-Site Manager
Thank you to everyone who participated in this annual tradition, not only did you fund medical research, groundbreaking tests and trials, life-changing men’s health programs and innovative treatments; but you also exemplified RedPeak’s value to KEEP WORK FUN! We’ll see you next year, Movember!
Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average 4.5 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. A growing number of men – around 10.8M globally – are facing life with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides.
Movember is uniquely placed to address this crisis on a global scale. Movember efforts fund groundbreaking projects all over the world, engaging men where they are to understand what works best and accelerate change. Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.
