$5K raised for men's health by New Canaan firm
During the month of November, $5,115 was raised by 15 staff members at Reynolds and Rowella in support of men's health, specifically to address prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
Changing the face of men's health is achieved in a creative way through a movement known as "Movember." Clean-shaven men participate by agreeing to grow moustaches for 30 days beginning Nov. 1 each year. Known as "Mo Bros," participants become talking billboards for men's health issues, and are encouraged to raise funds through sponsorships. Founded in 2006, the Movember movement is active in 14 countries worldwide. In the U.S., funds raised go to support the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
At Reynolds & Rowella, the top two mustachioed fundraisers, who together raised $3,035, were Frank A. Rowella, Jr., CPA, managing partner and Ben Maini, CPA, partner. In 2011, the firm was placed 493rd in the United State in amount of funds raised and Movember is reported to have raised over $113 million worldwide.
