For the second year in a row, Canadian men participating in the Movember campaign for prostate cancer research, have raised more money than any other country in the world.
The sixth annual event which ended on Friday, has so far raised more than 37-million dollars in Canada for men’s health initiatives.
In all, close to a quarter of a million Canadian men took part in growing mustaches for the month of November.
Pete Bombaci is the National Director of Movember Canada. He says, “I honestly think it comes down to the fact that Canadians are a truly giving group of people and we’re fortunate that we live in a country where we actually care about our neighbours.”
