VIENNA, VA – November 2, 2012— Largest Hispanic-Owned IT Integrator in the U.S., MicroTech, teams up to support the Movember initiative. Yesterday at MicroTech Headquarters manly Mo Bros shaved off their facial hair for the Movember kickoff. In an effort to “to change the face of men’s health,” MicroTech has registered to grow their Mo’s (Mo is short for moustache) to raise money for men’s health issues.
November is the month where men grow moustaches as a way to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer and men’s mental health. Started by 30 guys in Australia in 2003, Movember has grown in popularity to almost one million participants last year. Partnered with and raising funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LiveStrong, Movember participants have raised over $126 million for men’s health initiatives.
MicroTech’s Movember initiative is being led by Team Captain and President and CEO Tony Jimenez. He bravely shaved his long existing facial hair yesterday to kickoff the month-long initiative. The MicroTech team is made up of MicroTech employees, male and female, and other supporters. Some of the male participants shaved their mustaches and facial hair off for the first time in 20 plus years yesterday and for the month of November the male members of the team will grow their mustaches.
“MicroTech supports numerous charities and this specific cause is special because several members of MicroTech have family and friends impacted by the very diseases this campaign is trying to eliminate”, said Jimenez. “Simply put…this is personal for us and we want to make a difference”.
