Movember moustaches made an impact this
year at Vincent Massey Secondary School, with a very committed male staff
raising over $1800 towards male health. Male staff kept their razors on
the shelf for the duration of the month of November in order to facilitate
online donations towards male prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental
A secondary school wide challenge for the Movember fundraiser was posed by
Massey Principal Mr. Ash, who wished to not just grow moustaches, but
also awareness regarding men’s health throughout the Windsor and
Essex County area. Memos, posters, and smiles kept Massey staff motivated
and dedicated throughout the month, with a final culmination of a first prize
trophy going to the "Massey Mostang Team" for raising the most funds!
Herman S.S., Forster S.S. and Harrow D.H.S. followed close behind.
A thank you and congratulations goes out to all staff who participated, whether
through growing facial hair, awareness, or donating funds! The key result
of the month’s fundraiser was not only in enabling monetary assistance, but in
working together we were able to raise local consciousness concerning a global
wide cause. When we group together to help those in need, we can uplift
the spirits of many, ourselves included, and make a difference.
