Movember Happy Hour. November 13, 2015. 6-9PM. Sprout Music Collective in West Chester, PA.
When I announced that I would be hosting a fundraiser in support of men's health, many questioned my personal connection to the charity that I selected to support.
Due to personal experience and loss, I have always associated terminal illness with breast cancer and females. About six months ago, I started working with a non-profit organization that grants wedding wishes to couples facing life-altering circumstances or illness (Wish Upon a Wedding). It has been enlightening, heartbreaking and inspiring.
Men's health is a serious issue that does not get enough attention, and this fundraiser is my way of trying to enlighten and highlight the importance of the Movember Foundation, a global charity dedicated to raising funding and awareness for men's health. The Movember Foundation works with all sectors of men's health from encouraging general exercise and wellness to funding testicular and prostate cancer campaigns and programs.
