We are in the middle of #BreastCancerAwareness Month, and the Women’s Swim team did a fantastic job selling T shirts in September in preparation. We sold over 125 T Shirts with the proceeds all going to the Susan G. Komen foundation of SE Wisconsin.
But now November is right around the corner. And that brings us back to Movember!!
The past two years I have actively grown a mustache. And although the family supports what I am doing, I am pretty sure they all hate the mustache. Maybe Michelle can write a post on her new blog site on how much she does not like it 🙂
It all starts November 1st!
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. They achieve this by challenging men to grow, and women to support, mustaches during Movember to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
Of the funds raised in the US in 2013, 83.8% has been committed to programs supporting prostate cancer and testicular cancer initiatives. The Movember team is proud of the high percentage of funds committed to programs, which is above international best practice of 80% of funds raised invested in programs.
This Movember, I’ve committed my upper lip once again to help change the face of men’s health by growing a mustache, now I need your support: http://mobro.co/kylebedalov.
I’m passionate about this cause because too many men are dying unnecessarily from testicular cancer, the most common cancer in young men. Current treatments for testicular cancer are pretty good, but pretty good is just not good enough.
The Movember Foundation is working around the clock and around the world to improve the lives of men and their families affected by testicular cancer. I need your support to fund this important work. Together, we can create a world where no man dies of testicular cancer.

The past two years I was able to raise $400 each year. Hopefully with your generous support I will once again be able to reach that goal.
