movember2013The Great Canadian Fire Challenge was a staggering success this year, raising a total of $376,645 for programs dedicated to men's health.

Firefighters across Canada grew moustaches to raise funds for and bring awareness to various men's cancers and to men's mental health issues; both affect the fire service in greater numbers than the rest of the population.

While more than 200 fire departments participated in this year's challenge only one can be crowned winner and walk away with the Great Canadian Fire Challenge Movember Moustache Trophy.
