Last fall, myself and a number of MGoBlog folks had a Movember Moustache drive for cancer research.
Apparently our group, MoGoBlue, attracted the attention of those directly at the Movember Foundation! I was contacted by a representative who is interested in speaking with someone from the group:
As the official Moustache Pledge Master, a major part of my job is connecting with Mo Bros & Mo Sistas that have rocked out the Mo on campus, hearing their Movember story, and turning those into best practices to share with college Mo’s around the country! Hopefully your schedule isn’t too busy as the summer months arrive because, if you have a little bit of free time, I would love to hop on a quick call to get your story and thank you for helping us change the face of men’s health.
I am guessing they would prefer to connect to someone who has actually attended the University of Michigan - and not a "wannabe" founder. I know our group was relatively small (~14 people) but I also know many others participated in their own groups. Thought this would be a great opportunity to get U of M on the map and encourage other college groups to participate!
If anyone is interested in being a participant in discussing your Movember experiences as a UM Student or Alum - please let me know! Please reply with your email address in the comments below.
Glad our efforts got some recognition on the way to raising money for cancer research!
