Horsham, PA (PRWEB) January 15, 2013
Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, proudly announces its participation in the Movember fundraiser. Movember is an organization that raises funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. This is the second year Toll Brothers has formed a national team and supported this cause.
Movember “is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on men’s faces, in the US and around the world,” according to its mission statement. Held during the month of November, Movember participants start off the month clean shaven, and for the rest of the month they grow elaborate mustaches that they groom, trim, and wax. The men – known as Mo Bros – become walking, talking advertisements for this important cause as they raise funds for sponsorship. They are, in turn, supported by the women in their lives – known as Mo Sistas.
The funds raised by Movember in the United States support prostate cancer and testicular cancer, and are directed to programs run by Movember and its men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with the organization’s goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.
Team Mo Toll had 26 Mo Bros participants from the Corporate Office in Horsham, Pennsylvania; Connecticut; Florida; Maryland; New Jersey; Texas; and, Virginia, raising $12,374. The team came in at #122 out of 14,991 teams in the United States. Great job to all of our Mo Bros and the Mo Sistas who supported them.
