The Movember Foundation is a charity formed to raise awareness and money for men’s health issues. The foundation is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health by addressing some of the biggest issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. In 15 years, the Movember Foundation has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
The Movember tradition encourages fundraising and the growing of facial hair for “no-shave November” as a sign of solidarity with the cause. To this end, officers of the Clermont Police Department have participated annually by donating to the foundation and growing facial hair during the month of November. As of November 30, 2018, the Clermont Police Department team has raised just under $1,000 for this charity during this year’s initiative.
Due to the success achieved by the CPD team this year, Chief Broadway has authorized the extension of the no-shave policy through the month of December, 2018, and officers are continuing their fundraising efforts. Members of the community are welcomed and encouraged to donate to the team, and a link to the official CPD Movember team page can be found below.
Clermont Police Department would also like to thank Officer Mark Marshall and Arellano Realty & Investments for their generous donation to the CPD team.
