My motivation

Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health

There are a lot of things that plague humanity, but I'm here to lend a hand spreading awareness and fighting the good fight against a few of these. Movember is about raising awareness and research money for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. We all know people who have been affected by at least one of these - and we have it in us to make life better. You can help us stop men from dying too young, whether due to cancer or suicide.

It's my 11th year doing this. The team has dwindled down to being just me - but that just means I am going to try even harder to push awareness for this! I feel that it's my duty to represent the ever-increasing number of people that I know who are suffering.

Thank you to everyone that has contributed - both now and in the past. This is an important issue.

Let's do this!

As with every year, my daughter and I have a tradition of taking a "serious" photo (because this is a serious project that we have undertaken) - and this has become something of a tradition for everyone that follows me on this journey (since a large number of folks have asked "where is the serious photo with Olivia?").

Again, thank you all so much for your kindness and generosity. I will see you next year. And, if you like, you can join me in my quest next November!

I walked 5 km

Went for a team dinner and then had a walk around Montreal. Lost track of time (and forgot that Montreal is on a big hill). Definitely a fulfilling walk worthy of a MOVE for Movember.

2 Week(s) Ago
I walked 3 km

Santa visit, grocery hike (loaded backpack on the way back). Not a lot, but just enough...

3 Week(s) Ago
I walked 3 km

Dropped the car off in the morning to get winter tires and had them drop me off at work. Walked back from work to pick up the car. Questioned my sanity as I got pelted with cold misty rain.

3 Week(s) Ago
I ran 1.6 km00:10:00

Seem to have caught something, but I didn't want to let up. Had an easy run around the track.

3 Week(s) Ago
I walked 8.2 km

Took conference calls while walking to meetings. Topped it off by walking home from the subway station.

3 Week(s) Ago
I walked 8.25 km

Between a business trip to Ottawa and choosing to walk instead of taking transit, I racked up a few more kilometers.

3 Week(s) Ago
I walked 12.5 km

Made a decision to step it up and walk as much as possible. I am behind and I need to catch up.

It's the 17th now, and we're in the final third of the month. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far. Here is the latest and greatest pic.

3 Week(s) Ago
I ran 2 km00:13:00

Went running in new shoes made for winter activity. Feet stayed warm and dry. Not the best time, but considering I was running on ice...

4 Week(s) Ago
I walked 2 km

Did some 1:1 meetings while walking this morning. Made sure to do 2 km so as to move the needle a bit more.

4 Week(s) Ago
I walked 1.5 km

Stopped at a different spot and walked to get groceries. Not a long walk, bur everything counts.

8 days in and not too shabby. The salt-and-pepper makes it look like my moustache grows in patches - but what can you do? #GettingOlder

Thanks so much for the donations so far! Please keep them coming! I am a little behind in posting things - but I promise to catch up this weekend.

Day 6! After a bit of travelling and some all-day meetings, I finally had a chance to post a catch-up photo. Not too shabby!
