Gentlemen, it is time to put your hair where your mouth is…uhhh…literally. We would like to kick of a new KCF fundraising challenge. Since 2004 men around the globe have dedicated the month of November to growing a mustache to raise awareness for men’s health issues, primarily prostate cancer. For the first time ever, we would like to get the KCF community involved.
While this is a big international campaign, we would like to keep things at a local level. Many of you know that we recently partnered with the Peninsula Cancer Center to provide a CrossFit class for their new program called Survive & Thrive. We coached several breast cancer survivors through 12 weeks of CrossFit. It was an amazing experience and we are looking forward to further involvement with this program that will be extended to patients with cancers of all types.
So, here’s the deal, participating men will start with a clean-shaven face on November 1st. The goal from there is to grow the most amazing mustache possible for the remainder of the month. The members of the KCF community will vote with their wallets to determine the winner of the challenge. Each member of the challenge will have a collection jar at the box that you can put your “votes” (donations) into. At the end of the month we will count the “votes” and the stache that raises the most cash will be declared the winner. (Prize package yet to be determined, but rest assured that it will be much better than a pack of coupons) All the raised cash will be donated to the Survive & Thrive program (be sure to become a fan of the Survive and Thrive Facebook page).
Men, time to start planning your styles. If you aren’t sure which style is best for you, check out this video directory.
