Despite the many difficulties faced by everyone during this challenging year, we are pleased to share that it did not put a damper on our annual Movember fundraising efforts. Our amazing staff have once again shown their selfless commitment to charitable giving, as we set a new company fundraising high with $36,394 (and counting!) that will go toward supporting Movember's efforts to cure prostate cancer, as well as other men's health issues.
This year, we had 122 participants representing eight regional teams from across the country. Our company-wide team also led the Movember Engineering Challenge, made up of engineering firms from across Canada, as we raised more than twice the second place team!
Our fundraising total includes a generous corporate donation of $6,100, made in the name of the Edmonton team as they took first place on our internal team leaderboard when the buzzer sounded, narrowly edging out Team BC. The Regina/Winnipeg team also deserves kudos, as despite being the second-smallest team, they had the highest fundraising average per person. Congratulation to all of the teams on an amazing year of fundraising!
We thank everyone who participated, cheered on our campaign, and kindly donated. Your dedication to the causes we support are what makes Associated a special place to work!
