Members of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity can’t decide what’s growing faster: the amount of money they are raising or the amount of hair on their chins.
Welcome to Movember, a 30-day time period when men put down their razors and grow out their moustaches, while raising awareness of the health issues many men face, most specifically, cancer.
To date, members of DKE have raised more than $800, which will benefit Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the national partners of the U.S. chapter.
According to Movember’s website, the organization launched in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. Since its inception, more than a 1.1 million people have joined the movement, raising more than $174 M USD to date.
