Team member David McEvoy, who is responsible for oversight of firm calendaring operations, organized a Movember fundraiser to support men’s health issues and fight prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Organizing an in-office facial hair growing contest, David nearly doubled his original donation goal and caused more than a few smiles in the office by enlisting eight contestants who agreed to a 30-day-long contest for growing moustaches, beards and other facial hair configurations to be judged by an almost impartial panel of co-workers.
Movember is a global charity focused solely on men’s health. The foundation raises funds to deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support programs that enable men to live happier, healthier, and longer lives. Awareness and fundraising activities are run year-round with the annual Movember campaign being recognized for its fun, disruptive approach to fundraising and getting men to take action for their health.
The 2022 contest winner was Joe Nicholson who commented that never before had he been rewarded for growing a beard, and looks forward to defending his title in 2023.
