Grateful for this wonderful support

Posted on Saturday 7th

Fundraising feels good. It feels better when you have a community behind you. My boss and I are dressing dapper every day until the ride. With his support, the ongoing support from Anabia Cupcakery Cafe, and now the support of Morning Owl Manotick I aspire to far surpass my goal of $2500.

This will set the bar high as I will be trying each year to do better than the year before. I love the challenge! Raising awareness and funds towards such an important cause feels amazing. Having great people, a community and peers actively engaged in support just makes the whole effort and experience so much more rewarding.

Gratitiude.

Let's do this!

Posted on Sunday 11th

In 2013 I was runnning a Tough Mudder Obstacle Race in Tampa, Florida. That gave my friends and I about 13 grueling miles to work as a team to complete the race. Part of that process was finding distractions and chatting along the way. Several of the team dressed up for the occassion: there was a sumo runner, a Superman, and relevant to this blog was the 'Flash' Freddie Mercury - complete with moustache.

That moustache was the butt of many a joke over those 13 miles. What it led to though, was an agreement by all runners to each grow their moustahces out for the next 30 days. This was to culminate in a party, hosted by me, whereby we would again dress up; only this time to the character, person, or persona that we felt our moustache best represented. We established a minimum donation amount by all party-goers that would be pooled and donated to Movember that year.

'Flash' Freddie Mercury made another appearance at the party. Other persona that showed to that party were: Aldo "The Apache" Raine, some kind of Daisy Duke cowboy, Ulysses Everett McGill, and I came as Chef from Apocolypse Now. Aldo Raine won and $250 USD was donated to Movember. Thus began my now six years of acting as host (or rather, life suport system) for my majestic moustache; and my continuing commitment to Movember.

I have had my handlebar moustache since then, and I completely understand that With Great Moustache, Comes Great Responsibility. Take solice that I have decided to use my moustache for good in supporting Movember. As of last year my chosen vehicle for this effort is The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride.

Last year I raised about $1000. This year I am aiming for $2500 (but secretly hoping to far surpass that amount).

Let's do this! Join me as I begin fundraising now. It is a good, but more significantly an important cause. I will mount my trusty steed on 29 September in my finest threads, and I will humbly participate in this global ride to raise awareness of, and join the fight against prostate cancer and men's health issues.

Join me on the Ride for Men's Health in The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride

Posted on Sunday 11th

On Sunday the 29th of September, I will don my finest attire with my fellow men and women across the globe to join the fight with The Distinguished Gentleman's Ride to raise awareness for prostate cancer and men's mental health. But before I press my tweed and polish my boots, I need you to donate what you can for this meaningful cause and help me reach my goal.

For your uncles, your brothers, your fathers and friends. Donate what you can, for their lives need not end.
