'Movember' Moves In!

Dec 4, 2012 |

About a month ago, Hermanson Corporate Plumbing Superintendent Petter Fausko had a great idea - let's participate in "Movember!"

Movember is an annual, month-long event that involves growing out facial hair through the month of November to raise awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer initiatives. Inspired by those who are currently battling prostate cancer, a group of Hermanson folks signed up to participate in Movember and scruffiness ensued. And, as usual, a competition was thrown in to sweeten the deal.

Over 30 Hermanson guys signed up for Movember with a minimum donation of $50 to a contribution pot. At the end of the month, the "best" mustache would be selected and a donation made in the winner's name the Prostate Cancer Foundation. At the Hermanson Company Holiday party, after initial voting was completed, the top three participants were pulled onto stage and the winner decided by the entire crowd! Congratulations Justin Murray!

In the end, $1,881 was raised for prostate cancer awareness and we had A LOT of fun! Next year we will have even more participants!
