day 30: movember gala partee

“Our partés are quite something ”

The official Gala Partee celebrate the end of Movember. I attended my first Movember gala in Toronto. Instead of dressing to suit my Mo Bro, I wore a Charlie Chaplin outfit. The gala partees are a curious thing! On the one hand its an amazing opportunity to meet up with […]

day 28: jacqueline

“It’s easier when you make it into a real life experience rather than just facts”

Jacqueline is studying genetics and biology at university. She is currently researching colon cancer for a project.  Importantly, she has found that it is not enough to merely bombard people with facts. A more effective strategy is to share specific case […]

“he said it is getting itchy”

When asked about Movember, Raquel tells me about her cousin in Nippissing who is participating in Movember by growing a moustache. Even though he lives far away, she is able to track his MOgress by checking out his photos and updates on Facebook.

Movember has truly tapped into the social and […]

day 26: iwona

“I’ve researched prostate cancer”

Iwona is very
informed regarding prostate cancer. She explains to me that it is the most common cancer for men. I’m impressed that she knows this! She makes the link to breast cancer for women, which is precisely what I did in my MA thesis on Movember and the Run for the Cure. […]

day 25: pampreet

“I know a lot of teachers who grow a ‘stache”

Pampreet opts for a bright and obvious moustache.

She knows about Movember and quite a few friends and teachers have participated in the campaign; however, she is unsure if they raised any money. This begs the question: is it okay to grow a moustache for Movember and […]

Out for a Mo Sista night with Laura, Caron, and Jennifer. We don some mos at Oysterstar and instantly draw a crowd of curious patrons. Patrick, the moustachioed owner introduces us, and also announced that with every $50 donation to our campaign that he would give […]

day 23: alex

“I like the light-heartedness of the campaign”

I explain to Alex about my participation in Movember and she states that she has never thought about participating in Movember. Many women find it difficult to know how they participate in Movember, but there are some shining examples of Mo Sistas doing excellent work (See day 20 and […]
