Remember, Remember, It's Time for Movember

October 27, 2011 Davis W. Frank

November First will begin like any other day. I’ll wake up, I’ll shower, I’ll shave, I’ll take the train to work, and then I’ll code all day.

November Second will be a little different. I’ll wake up, I’ll shower, and I’ll shave, and I’ll take the train to work and code. But that shave will be a little shorter, skipping my upper lip. I’ll continue ignoring one part of my face through the end of the month.

Why? Because it’s Movember. And guys still get prostate and testicular cancer.

Last year during Movember, Pivotal Labs helped raise $10,000 of the $7.5M raised in the US for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG to help research and awareness of “dude cancer”.

This year we want to double that amount. But we need your help.

We started a network at Movember called Webstache – a place where anyone in the web development community can start a team, or join a team, or just donate. Our friends at Square have joined the Pivotal teams from San Francisco, Boulder and New York. How about your company?

The mustache I’ll be growing is sad. But not as sad as the fact that 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
