Firefighters get behind Movember

Pitt Meadows firefighters raise close to $9,000

Even the fire trucks were sporting moustaches as the Pitt Meadows Fire Rescue Members Association did its annual Movember fundraiser.

The truck-sized moustaches gave their grills a masculine touch.

The firemen raised $8,650 that will go to the Movember Foundation. which targets prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health and suicide prevention.

Over the past 15 years, the Movember Foundation has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world, and the goal is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25 per cent by the year 2030.
