TRC Team Fights Prostate and Breast Cancer with Fundraisers

TRC Team Joins the Fight Against Prostate Cancer Launching ‘Movember’ Mustache Contest

The Retail Connection has joined forces with Livestrong and the Prostate Cancer Foundation in supporting Movember, a month long mustache growing contest [starting November 1st ending November 30th] and fund raiser that promotes awareness for men’s health, specifically cancer affecting men.

- 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in his lifetime

- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime

The team all agreed that the only way to make a difference [and to have a lot of fun doing it] was to encourage full participation. TRC will award the best and worst mustaches by an esteemed panel of judges all while raising money to help find cures for these cancers.

Of course, the best part is the laughs we all have along the way as members of the team work to fight ridicule and antagonism should the ‘MO’ be coming in a little too slowly. It’s all for a few good laughs and a great cause.
