MoVember for men’s health

MoVember ended on Nov. 30 and the winners were named. The charity event was  held to help raise awareness for men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer. The organization MoVember, in partnership with the Lance Armstrong Association, LIVESTRONG, and the Prostate Cancer Foundation provides money to be used in programs for research and education on the diseases. In 2010, over 64,500 people participated and raised more than $7.5 million dollars. All participants that entered the contest were dubbed “Mo Bros” and were unable to shave for the duration of MoVember. Chris Leland headed up the panel of judges who decided the winners and presented the prizes. Angus Smith took home first place receiving a complete shaving kit.  Runners up received either shaving kits or iTunes or Applebees gift cards.
