Movember at Deer Valley

You normally don’t see a lot of facial hair on the men that work at Deer Valley, but November was a different story. “Movember” as it has became known, encouraged staff members to grow their best mustache to bring awareness to men’s health issues.

You may be asking yourself how growing a mustache going to bring awareness to men’s health issues. When someone grows a new mustache people take notice. This creates a conversation, which in turn generates awareness on the health issues men face.  Awareness then prompts people to take action. This is the goal!

According to Movember.com on average, men die five years younger than women. The suicide rate is four times higher for men than women and 24% of men are less likely to go to the doctor compared to women.

All of this being said, Deer Valley was excited to get on board with the Movember movement. Team Captain, Bryan Almond recruited the team and created profiles for everyone on Movember.com. Each week in November team members would come into the HR office and take a progress picture. These pictures would then be added to their Movember profile and shared on social media. Friends and family could make donations to the cause on the Movember website.

All together the Deer Valley team raised $1,125 for men’s health research!

The following team members are recognized for their outstanding commitment to the team.
