Two lucky Mo Bros are headed to Ireland thanks to Jameson!

Prize Winner Spotlight

Two lucky Mo Bros are being rewarded for their exceptional fundraising efforts thanks to our partners at Jameson. The top fundraisers from the top Mo teams and a guest will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day where it all began- in Ireland! This all-expense paid trip to the homeland of Jameson will be a once in a lifetime experience. Raise your glass to the moustache! 

High fives to Mo Bro Chris Hatton, the top fundraiser and team captain for This Time…It’s Personal, the top fundraising team with 10 or less members. Chris, a prostate cancer survivor, personally raised over $13,000 and led his team to raise an incredible $47,000. Way to go Chris!

Congrats to Mo Bro Larry Aldrich, the top fundraiser on the a-Mo-zing Cox Enterprises team, which blew away the competition in the teams with more than 11 members. A first year Mo Bro, Larry personally raised over $43,000 and the collective efforts of his teammates raised a tremendous $752,000. Cox Enterprises Inc. went on to gift match the efforts of its employee’s efforts and donated over 1.7M to Movember. 

Larry says, “I became involved because our Chairman, Jim Kennedy, was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of prostate cancer, and the company wanted to do this in his honor. His son, Jamie Kennedy, brought the idea to our senior management and it took off.  I have known Jim and his family for 27 years, and wanted to do something to help. My success was due to the generosity of the many companies we work with and the support of my wife throughout the campaign.”

Here at the Movember Foundation, we are truly humbled by the fundraising efforts of Chris and Larry and their respective teams. It’s because of the dedication of our Mo community that we are able to change the face of men’s health. We hope Chris and Larry have an incredible adventure discovering Ireland over St. Patrick’s Day!
