Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) December 12, 2012
It was a “Movember” to remember at MRI Software, a leading property management software provider for the multifamily and commercial property market. Although MRI Software team members are back to a clean shaven look, this was not the case just one week ago when many had full moustaches in varying shapes and styles. Banding together on a corporate team, almost 40 MRI Software members (U.S. and International) decided to partake in Movember, a charitable movement that organizes individuals all over the world to grow out their moustaches, document their growth and experience, and collect donations. The goal of the movement is to raise awareness around the often overlooked issue of men’s health – particularly prostate and testicular cancer.
“MRI Software is committed in the fight against cancer by partaking in charitable events like Movember and last month’s work with the Susan G. Koman Foundation for the Cure,” explained John Ensign, General Counsel at MRI Software and participant in Movember. “Movember was a wonderful experience for a great cause and we are looking forward to increasing our participation in Movember 2013.”
To increase awareness, MRI Software brought the Movember message to the NMHC OPTech Conference in Dallas, Texas. Equipped with 100 costume moustaches, MRI Software pledged a $5 donation for every picture taken of a conference attendee wearing a fake moustache. The promotion increased donations while spreading the word of Movember and men’s health to the multifamily property management community.
And when November ended and it was time to shave, MRI Software members that participated in the moustache movement raised over $1,600 for Movember.
Started in 2004, the Movember Foundation has been running this annual charity event to help raise the awareness and funds needed for men’s health research – especially in the areas of early cancer detection, prostate and testicular cancer research, and treatment. This year over one million participants registered for Movember collectively raising over $120 million dollars toward the cause.
