It’s been quite a year for us at TrojanOne in regards to Movember.
This past June, we had Mr. Movember – Adam Garone – bring down the house with his closing keynote at the Canadian Sponsorship Forum. If you didn’t see it, check out this link.
With all due respect to Derek Jeter, I think Adam truly deserves to be called Mr. November… Or maybe Mr. Movember.
This fall, I was asked to join the Movember Toronto Committee, aptly run by sharpshooters Jordan Vader of MLSE and Casey Rovinelli from the NHLPA. One of the initiatives we have created is a Movember Agency Challenge. For all of you in the sector who want to get involved with your own team of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas, check it out and get your team signed up. Andrew Gayle (Andrew.Gayle@mosaic.com) of Mosaic, Nick Karantjas (firstname.lastname@example.org) of BOOM! Marketing, and TrojanOne’s own Michelle Conte (email@example.com) have been doing all the heavy lifting on this one. Contact any one of them for mo’ information.
Here at TrojanOne, our team has jumped all over Movember. We have a committee consisting of almost 20 members, including senior-level staff such as our TrojanOne creative director Cary Laudadio, as well as Elizabeth Phipps, Matt Harpur, Danielle Minard and Alex Tushingham – led by our fearless and highly mo’tivated team captain, Jody Facchini (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Team MojanOne has been crazy busy organizing a team shave at a local barber shop, scurrying to create a video that may rival Mosaic’s, and rallying our troops as we attempt to double our 2010 total and raise $20,000!! If you want to contribute, please click on our team page here.
Movember IS changing the face of men’s health. It’s crucial for all of us. It’s more than a fundraiser, it’s about raising awareness. Get up and book an appointment with your doctor. Today!
As some of you may know, my pops has been winning the fight against prostate cancer since February, 2009. This past August, he lapped the 80 mark and at Thanksgiving, we had a party with extended family to celebrate.
Movements like Movember are critical in ensuring we all get to celebrate 80th birthdays, Thanksgiving, and other milestones with our loved ones.
So get involved. Grow a Mo. Support a Mo. See your MoMD.
