My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Testicular cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

There are a lot of things that plague humanity (and these past few years have really driven that point home), but I'm here to lend a hand spreading awareness and to fight 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.

This is year number 14 as a Mo Bro! The team has dwindled to just me. That being said, I am an army of one - and we will do my best 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. These are very important issues.

Let's do this!

Day 22: Still climbing thanks to some generous donors. I have lowered my Move goal since it's probably not a good idea to push too much - but I will still try to get my steps in towards the original goal.
