Columbia International College is participating in Movember!
Once again, Columbia’s staff and students are encouraged to show their support for the campaign, not only by growing a moustache, but by raising awareness and money for men’s health issues. Last year, Columbia raised a total of $1107.37 from various fundraising initiatives including bake sales, casual days and button and mug sales, as well as personal donations. This year, they are hoping to raise even more money through similar fundraisers and the traditional staff vs. students basketball game.
Those wishing to participate in any of the school’s Movember events can contact Student Development in S244 for more information.
Since beginning in Australia in 2003, over 800 Movember campaigns in 21 countries have raised $574 million for men’s health issues, particularly prostate cancer and male mental health issues. To find out more about this creative campaign, visit the official Movember Canada page.
