The eleventh month was a little hairy at Apsalar this year. That’s because the company is a participant in the annual Movember awareness and fundraising project in support of men’s health issues.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. Movember creates positive change for men’s health by raising awareness and educating men year-round, and through its take-over of the month formerly known as November.
Today the company’s participation reached its climax with the facial hair judging ceremony. Here’s a snap of our fantastic contestants Sandesh, Dayton, Rob, Dillon (OOO, in photo held by Rob) and Keith, bookended by our equally fantastic judges Keren and Michelle.
And here’s a picture of our winner, Sandesh.
In addition to the fun of seeing normally clean shaven Apsalarians put their best follicles forward, the effort and associated fundraising projects raised $423 for a very good cause. Congratulations to our winner and all of the contestants! And a special thanks to Rob, our Office and Operations Manager, who led our Movember fund raising efforts!
