This is my first year with Intelex and what better way to get to know my fellow coworkers than by growing moustaches together?
Yes, that’s right: the Intelex family participated in this year’s Movember. Ah, how my upper lip does miss its fuzzy warmth (sadly I had to say goodbye to it on December 1st).
In addition to Intelexians raising $2,635 throughout the month of November to help support research for prostate cancer, President and CEO Mark Jaine also pledged that the company would match all donations made during Movember, bringing the grand total to $5,270!
Intelexian Mo Bros and Mo Sistas diligently collected donations from family, friends and the local community to make this sizeable contribution.
From every Mo Bro and Sista at Intelex, thank you all for your support! And until next year, “May the Mo be with you!”
Some of the Intelex Mo Bros featured in the picture to the top right are as follows (from left to right): Avi Iliaguiev (Sales), Stephen Ross (Sales), JP Nadeau (Marketing), Mike Thompson (Marketing), Matt Conquer (GSS), Misha Raizberg (Development), Purdal Mya (Professional Development), Bryan Humphries (Professional Development), Richard Fenn (Development), Birendra Rajapreyar (Sales), Brett McLennan (Sales), Jeff Yaeger (GSS).
What is Movember you might ask?
Movember, the month formerly known as November, invites men and women across the globe to join together and raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues. Men grow a ‘Mo’ (moustache) for 30 days to become walking, talking billboards, for men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer.
Men who support Movember (or ‘Mo Bros’), start by registering at Movember.com, beginning the month clean shaven, and proceeding to grow and groom their moustache, for the rest of the month, raising money along the way. Women who support Movember, called Mo Sistas, also start by registering at Movember.com. Mo Sistas champion the Mo by supporting their Mo Bros, organizing events, leading a team and spreading the important message of men’s health.
