We are running a Movember campaign here at Clearwater Secondary School. Movember is a program in which men grow facial hair (preferably moustaches) to bring awareness to what are predominantly men’s cancers: testicular and prostate cancer.

This year the campaign is a contest between students and teachers to see who can grow the best moustache. People vote for their favorites by donating 25 cents to our Movember campaign, which is called “Gro Yo Mo Fo Sho L’il Bro!” and which is registered with www.movember.com.

The campaign runs every day until Nov 30. So far we’ve raised over $100 but the goal is $1,000. All monies will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

We’re also having a good time laughing at ourselves, as you can guess. I have students in every grade participating – even some Grade 8s doing their very best to grow “something”!
