MOVEMBER is back! Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. Through the power of the moustache, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges.
Movember encourages men to join the movement by growing a moustache for the 30-days of November. They grow and groom their Mo (slang for moustache), asking friends and family to donate to their efforts. With their new moustaches, these men act as walking and talking billboards, bringing awareness to men’s health issues and prompting conversations wherever they go.
EC Montreal is proud to be part of these fundraising efforts!
Who will be growing a moustache this month?
Our 3 male student ambassadors; Kareem, Mishal and Juan will be growing a moustache and will be helping us organize our Movember fundraiser on November 13.
Max, our activity leader as well as a few of our male teachers are also letting their facial hair grow to help raise awareness for our Movember fundraiser!
EC is an organization that places a lot of importance on corporate social resonsibility. We devote our time to a variety of local charities as well as running an academic programme where our students have opportunities to participate as well. We feel it is so important for our students to get involved with our effort. Language and culture go hand in hand and a big part of the EC culture is getting involved and making a difference!
