Movember is a fund raising effort for the fight against and cure for prostate cancer.
It’s also a great way to get people involved and create a sense of brotherhood. The basics are pretty basic. You start the month of November by cleanly shaving your face. Mine had a goatee for about 8 years we’re thinking.
Then you start growing your moustache. You can use a variety of shapes, but the ‘sections’ can’t be joined…ie you can’t grow a beard. I’m going for a moustache and soul patch look. Here’s what it looks like tonight, 7 days in and last week, the day of the clean shave.
Given what my Dad is going through with colon cancer, I thought this was close enough. In essence, his close shave and current fight with cancer and my Mom’s past close shaves and current battle with leukemia could certainly inspire a little close shave of my own.
For a little fun and more info, check our team page as a bunch of great BCIT’ers are in on this. Dave Pinton is our fearless captain and has even put together a video. You can watch and vote here.
I will reveal a weekly moustache view as we approach the end of the month and the end of Movember…cause I know you would really appreciate that. I know Ingrid does…(not)!
The other reason I am happy to be involved is the sense of brotherhood that occurs when a bunch of guys do stupid things together. Yup, that’s what guys do. My work gang has been incredibly gracious to me (and Ingrid) over the past 7 months and it’s great to simply be part of the crew.

Dude! I’m 11 days in to a wicked MO. If it looked any better, I’d drive a panel van with AC/DC blasting and still have my mullet!
I’m afraid I’ll need pictoral evidence….!!!
