women. Two in five men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime –
and that number is significantly higher for firefighters.

How it works: First, register as an individual or with a team at, particularly under the Great Canadian Fire Challenge (fair
warning: some mo bros and mo teams have gotten a head start – the
Edmonton Fire Department has already raised more than $2,700. . . what
are you waiting for?).

Then, on Nov. 1, start with a clean-shaven face. For what to do next, click here. Send us a weekly photo
of you and your mo bros sporting the best 'stache you've got (email Olivia at We'll put
them online.

And don't forget to fundraise; the money is allocated to programs that
support prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.


Get involved: There are national and international prizes and
