PONTIAC Players Raise Money For Men’s Health

The Bonnyville PONTIACS raised $3580.00 for the Movember Foundation. Braiden DOUCETTE and Stephen KLEIN raised $1415.00 and $990.00 respectively for this great cause in which every PONTIAC took part of including Assistant Coach Mark JENSEN.

Movember (a portmanteau word from moustache and “November”) is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers; and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men's health.”

By encouraging men (which the charity refers to as “Mo Bros”) to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides getting an annual check-up, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of any family history of cancer, and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Thanks once again PONTIACS for all that you do.
