This November, members of the Chard Team joined together to take part in Movember and raise funds to support research for and bring awareness to prostate cancer, testicular cancer, as well as men’s mental health.
As part of the yearly movement that has taken place every November since 2003, participants can fundraise, grow a mustache, and move (walk, run, bike) to raise funds in support of medical research, ground-breaking tests and trials, life-changing men’s health programs and innovative treatments. In fact, over the past 19 years, this challenge has funded over 1,250 men’s health projects globally!
Not only did The Chard Movember Team raise their upper lips to the challenge, but they also hosted a weekly noon hour run throughout the month and completed a combined total of 78km.
The team’s initial target was to raise $1,000 – and Executive Director and Founder, Dave Chard generously offered to personally match up to that goal amount. By the end of the month, the team had raised $1,540 and when combined with the contribution from Dave, hit a grand total of $2,540!
Way to go #TeamChard!
