The MicroTech Team has joined the Movember campaign, "changing the face of men's health." The worldwide fundraiser puts the spotlight on men's health issues by encouraging men to grow moustaches for the month of November; it creates a camaraderie that we're very excited about.
We've already raised over $3,000 in support of research to find cures for testicular and prostate cancer. Here are some facts:
• The National Cancer Institute estimated that there will be 8,590 new cases of testicular cancer in 2012, with 360 of them resulting in death.
• That's small compared to the estimated 241,740 new cases of prostate cancer. 28,170 men that suffer from this disease, the NIH estimates, will die this year.
Since there are not many campaigns to call attention to these issues that affect half of our population, the MicroTech Team wants to create a lot of buzz around this initiative and we hope you'll help support our campaign!
Read our press release about our Movember initiative to learn more background information on why this is not just a fun event but also a very meaningful one.
Please help us in this fun and much needed men's health campaign. Movember ends November 30th so donate today!
