Each year, CRC CARES Foundation Members raise awareness and money for men's health by participating in Movember. Since 2003, the Movember Foundation has raised more than $650 million and funded over 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.
Our people have taken part in the annual Movember event—occurring in November—by growing out mustaches as a way to be a walking, talking billboard for men's health. This year, 11 participated from the Arlington Office, and three participated from the San Diego Office. A collective $3,000 was raised through their efforts, allowing the Movember Foundation to work year-round with their global men's health partners and academic and clinical institutions to ensure programs accelerate improvements to some of the biggest health issues faced by men.
While Movember is focused on raising awareness and funds for men's health, "Mo Sistas" of the CRC CARES Foundation also got in on the fun by supporting their male counterparts with faux mustaches around the office.
