This November, our Northbrook office has been raising funds for men’s health and awareness through Movember.com. The Movember Foundation
focuses on three areas of men’s health: prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention. With one American dying from prostate cancer every 19 minutes
, and with testicular cancer being the most common cancer in young men, men’s health is an important cause that we want to raise awareness around.
The “Movember” challenge is simple but leaves a large impact – by growing out their mustaches, men are raising funds and awareness for men’s health. Not only does this challenge start conversations around men’s health, but all proceeds will go to Movember.com
, which donates 76% of all funds
to helping men live happier, healthier and longer lives.
Last year, our employees raised $1,100, and this year we set a goal of $2,000. We’re 50% of the way there and need your help to reach our goal! If you want to donate or join our team, visit http://moteam.co/stericycle-inc. Our second year of the Movember Challenge is in full swing and it’s been a blast! We’re looking forward to calculating our final amount raised for men’s health and awareness, so stay tuned to hear about our progress.
