EDMONTON, AB (Movember 4, 2013): Three Wildrose MLAs are once again taking part in Movember in order to raise funds for men’s health research. In 2013 ‘Team WildMos’ will consist of MLAs Bruce McAllister, Gary Bikman and Blake Pedersen who will grow out moustaches for the month of November and collect pledges along the way.
“We are proud to once again participate in raising awareness for men’s health issues. We had a lot of fun with this last year and we are excited to take part again,” Pedersen said, the captain of Wildrose’s Movember team. “We hope that when people see our ‘mo’ around the community or standing in the Legislature they will be reminded to support someone they know who is growing their own.” The Movember campaign works to raise funds for men's health programs and to raise awareness about prostate cancer and the benefits of early detection. As early prostate cancer can have no symptoms early detection is essential. “I am proud of our ‘WildMos’ MLAs who are taking part and will work to discuss men’s health throughout Movember,” Wildrose leader Danielle Smith said. “I would also like to give credit to the wives of these 3 MLAs who will have to put up with their husbands facial hair all month.” To donate to Team Wildrose visit: http://wildro.se/1n8
