This November, the West Bend School District is partnering with the school districts of Slinger and Kewaskum, asking students and staff to grow facial hair to raise awareness for prostate and other male cancers. Money raised from Manvember will benefit the Kraemer Cancer Center at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin St. Joseph's Hospital.
$10 Registration fee for students
$20 Registration fee for staff and community members
Collect additional pledges! Top fundraisers could win a Chrome Book and other great prizes.
These are the FACTS:
One man in 7 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime.
One man in 36 will die of prostate cancer.
A man’s chance of getting prostate cancer increases as he ages.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, but other cancers also occur such as lung, colorectal, testicular and skin.
Prostate cancer is not something to take lightly. It is something that men—of all ages—cannot ignore.
