Tommy Guns is a proud participant in the annual National Movember fundraising initiatives held by the Movember Foundation. The Movember foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. They’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. They know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. They’re independent of government funding, so they can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 13 years, the Movember Foundation has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world. Their goal is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030, and Tommy Guns wants to help.
Last year, we were able to raise over $30,000 for the charity in support of men’s health! This year, we surpassed our goal, and raised $50,000! All Tommy Guns locations participated, and the teamwork we saw this year to raise funds was phenomenal. We want to thank all those who participated, donated, and helped us reach our goal in order to contribute to such a meaningful cause; Movember 2016!
