Dec. 11, 2012 - PRLog -- In the month of November, four team members at Crestview Chrysler of Regina (http://www.crestviewchrysler.ca/new-and-used-cars-regina.htm) grew moustaches and raised more than $2000 to support men’s health issues including prostate cancer and mental health. The four-man team participated in “Movemeber,” a November-centered event where men across Canada and the rest of the world grow and style moustaches to raise awareness for men’s health issues.

Employees Justin Piett, Chris Sabourin, and Tom Liagridonis were guided by their captain Kurtis Anderson and represented Crestview Chrysler's team in the event. They started on November 1st 2012 clean shaven with the mission “to change the face of men’s health.” The team began growing and styling their moustaches while raising a total of $2,215 during the month. Their facial progress can be viewed on their Movember Team page (http://ca.movember.com/team/668389).

Movember is a national event every November similar to “No Shave November” that college students participate in, except centered around Moustaches. Men wildly style their moustaches provoking conversation and are able to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. Movember is partnered with Prostate Cancer Canada and both organizations work together to distribute the funds raised during the event.

The funds raised go towards a variety of initiatives include raising awareness for prostate cancer and aiding prostate cancer research that can lead to new tests, preventions, and treatments for the disease. Movember also helps survivors and families who have been impacted by prostate cancer. Mental health issues affecting men are also assisted with the funds raised in Movember.

Movember began in Melbourne, Australia and has since spread to Canada, South Africa, Ireland, the Czech Republic, and many other countries. Even people stationed in Antarctica have participated in Movember. Last year, more than 854,000 people, including both “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas,” participated in the event and helped to raise $125.7 million.

Crestview Chrysler is grateful they could participate in such a worthy cause.
