On the Movember website they explain  that “During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their mo’s, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.”

The Lake Cowichan B.C. Ambulance team, MoMedics are in their third year of taking part in Movember.

Team captain Ryan Smith, is happy to say that the team is nearing their fundraising goal of $500 and are sitting at $310.

“Each medic has their own reasons for taking part, but it is a fun way to give back and raise awarness of something that we see regularly as street paramedics,” said Smith.
