Dec. 1, 2011 – Another Movember has come and gone. It was a hairy one,
but for a great cause. Let's take a look at some of the final numbers
from Movember's website . . .

According to Movember Canada's website, Canada raised a whopping $36,812,643 – more than any other country in the world! With 246,098 Mo Bros and Sistas registered, Canada had more than 100,000 more registered participants over the second-place country, Australia. Kudos to Canada!

On top of that, The Great Canadian Fire Department Challenge, with 1,840 participants, raised $290,128! Amazing! The winner of the challenge, with $20,866 raised, is Vancouver Fire $ Rescue Services. Great job!

The end of Movember doesn't mean you have to stop fundraising, though. Visit www.movember.com and support the future of men's health. Special thanks to our Fire Fighting in Canada, Canadian Firefighter and Firehall.com Mo Bros for keeping us updates with photos throughout the month!
