Event description

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it’s rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We cannot afford to stay silent. Men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. Prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. And across the world, one man dies by ******* every minute of every day, with males accounting for 60% of all suicides.
We are calling on our Heywood families to partner with us and address this dire, but preventable, problem by participating in Heywood’s Movember Challenge.
We are asking for a donation of $10.00 or more from each participant to support the Movember fundraiser. Six dollars of every ten dollars donated will go to the Movember organization to fund the fight against the male health crisis. While four dollars of every ten dollar donation will go towards funding student field trips for the students if Heywood Avenue School. The events for the challenge are:

Movember Mustache Challenge - Starting on November 1, 2019 the men of Heywood will start with a clean shaven ****. Grow and groom your mustache throughout the month of November. Don’t Fake it - no beards, no goatees, no fake mustaches! Use the power of your mustache to spark conversation and raise awareness of the health challenges men are facing. We are asking that the men of Heywood take a picture of their clean shaven **** on November 1st  and post it to the Heywood Twitter Account with the hashtags #Heywood and #Movember. Post updated pictures each Monday to show off your Movember mustache and to raise awareness of this important cause. The Heywood Twitter address is: 

         2. Movember Fitness 60 Mile Challenge - Embrace a healthy habit by challenging yourself to walk at least 2              miles per day (Sixty Miles Total) in the month of November.
