If the Last Drop’s Cyril Tomlinson has a passion it’s his dedication to the Movember Movement, the month formerly known as November, which is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health.

“I have joined the movement and will be donating my upper lip to the cause for 30 days,” he said in a statement to promote city-wide enthusiasm for Mos. “My Mo will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds prostate cancer.”

Naturally, he is challenging other men in Revelstoke to grow their own Mos and raise money for prostate cancer research.

“Why am I so passionate about men’s health? On average, men live four to five years less than women, one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime and 25,500 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer this year in Canada.

“I invite you to support me by donating to me”

Tomlinson will also accept cheques payable to “Movember Canada” that reference his name and Registration Number 522924. Those can be sent to: Movember Canada, 119 Spadina Avenue, PO Box 65, Toronto, ON M5T 2T2

All donations are tax deductible.

“We only have a month to grow Mos and raise awareness and funds, so please come along for the ride,” he said

Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partner, the Prostate Cancer Canada, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible.
