The Fullscript Movember Team recently celebrated a major milestone, generating $5,355 in donations from this year’s Movember fundraising and doubling last year’s total. Movember is an annual fundraising event during the month of November to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s mental health. In order to raise funds for Movember, participants can pledge to grow a moustache, or achieve a specified movement goal such as running, walking, or cycling a specific distance over the course of the month. Fullscript’s top fundraiser this year was Product Marketing Manager Ally Foster, who pledged to run 60km throughout the month, though she surpassed her target by running a total of 80.14km. Ally led the team in donations by raising $745.
“I chose the 60km target for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world,” said Foster. “Running doesn’t come naturally to me, and I don’t particularly enjoy November weather, so this goal represented a real commitment for me. But, men’s mental health is an issue that’s particularly close to my heart, and I’m proud to have been part of such a successful fundraising effort.”
Fullscript Movember team captain Cam Moores says he’s thrilled with this year’s result and is looking forward to more success in the years to come.
“Our first Movember campaign at Fullscript was three years ago, and I couldn’t be more proud of the fact that we’ve raised $10,000 for men’s health over that time,” said Moores. “Our mission at Fullscript is to help people get better, and we’re proud to contribute towards Movember’s goal of reducing the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by the year 2030. We look forward to even greater contributions in the years ahead.”
