Its May-vember! If you are reading this, you probably have heard from me before about the Movember Foundation. I'm getting started extra early in 2022 as this is my 9th year supporting a great cause.

After successfully navigating the Chicago Marathon (my 5th dose of 26.2) I'm going to lace up my sneakers to run the NYC Marathon in 2022 for the Movember Foundation team. This is my 3rd NYC Marathon and I plan on putting up my best effort after completing it in 2015/2016.

Men’s health and the other initiatives that the Movember Foundation supports (cancer, mental health, etc). have been top of mind since starting my mustache growing for Movember began in 2014. To date, I have raised over $40k for the cause. Historically, my father's successful battle against prostate cancer (he's 78 and still kicking) and the unfortunate passing of a close friend/colleague from brain cancer helped motivate my efforts.

Its an honor to run NYC for the 3rd time and I look forward to ramping up my training and fundraising efforts in the months to come. Stay tuned for another ugly mustache in November as well!.

Hey Joel, I am Kellie Paich on the Movember Programs Team. I want to personally thank you for all you have done. Because of you, we are able to continue to fund innovative programs in prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. I hope you enjoyed your Movember, but don’t forget, men’s health is year-round!

This morning I ran an incredibly gratifying half marathon in Philadelphia in honor of Joe Mastrogiovanni an old friend who has been my Movember 2019 inspiration. Joe lost a battle to cancer this year and I heard him cheering me on from heaven during the race. One of my fastest finishes in years!

Hi

I just wanted to drop you a quick personal note to thank you for your amazing work in raising funds to stop men dying too young.

As the Global Director at the Movember Foundation, I have had the privilege of speaking with men across the world who have directly benefited from the programs we fund. Some have told me that it’s thanks to these programs that they are alive today. I always tell these guys that it’s thanks to the MoBros and MoSistas from across the world that this important work is made possible, and assure them that that I will pass on this message to you – so on behalf of guys across the world and all of us at Mo HQ – thank you!

We appreciate your ongoing support to help us stamp out cancer.

Mo’ On
