A team of Burnaby RCMP officers raised almost $21,000 and beat other local RCMP detachments in their annual Great Canadian Police Challenge.
Const. Greg Carwithen led the charge for the Burnaby Fuzz team, personally raising $15,722 toward greater awareness and funds for men's health, specifically prostate cancer. The team raised a total of $20,953.
Movember challenges men to change their appearance by growing a moustache. The moustache becomes the ribbon for men's health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for prostate cancer. Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.
