Mustache Run to Raise Awareness of Prostate Cancer

A long-running prostate cancer fundraiser is getting a new look this year.

Dr. Tom Whalen tells CHSJ news that this year's One Mo' Run could get a little...hairy:

As a tie-in to the popular mustache-minded charity event, Movember, this year participants are encouraged to grow a 'stache or sport fake facial hair.

The event aims to raise awareness of prostate cancer, which effects up to 1 in 6 men.

Participants can walk for 5km, or run for 1km. After the run, a hot lunch will be served. The event will be held near the Bill McGuire center in Rothesay. Registration starts at 10am on Sunday.
