#ygkChallenge: Support Movember

ygkchallenge, Movember, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Love the Mos. It’s that time of year again: the mos are back! We’re just at the beginning stages but in the next couple of weeks we’ll start seeing an influx of incredible facial hair being sported by those participating in Movember. The stashes are being grown in support of a month-long campaign to change the face of men’s cancer. Donations made throughout November are directed to programs designed to combat prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. With prostate cancer being the most commonly diagnosed cancer among Canadian men, chances are you know someone who has been affected. Women, or those who don’t want to grow, can participate too, not only by donating but also by taking The Move Challenge. It can be anything, as long as it gets you moving in the month of November. Sign up for a race, learn a new sport, commit to going to the gym. Whatever works for you. There’s a good chance you know someone who is participating so head over to their Mo Space and drop off a donation. Not sure who’s taking the challenge? Use the handy search tool to find registered participants.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
