RF-SMART Movember Challenge: To Shave or Not to Shave?

Eighteen fine folks at RF-SMART stood proud and said no to shaving, participating in a “growing” national movement called Movember (the month formerly known as November).

So what’s Movember?

It’s a mustache-growing charity event held during November each year to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. Exceeding our goal, RF-SMART raised $1580 toward the Movember Foundation with a silent auction and a fundraising event at Aardwolf, a local brewery. In fact, we raised $300 that night by selling mustache pint glasses to bar patrons and facial hair supporters, learning that people do in fact love the mustache.

One other thing we learned: There are many different personalities and emotions that can surface when growing a mustache:

You might be the happy mustache group.

Or it might make them go a bit crazy.
