Movember

Team Austin members turned out Tuesday afternoon to show their support for Movember, an annual moustache charity event designed to raise awareness and funds for cancers that affect men, benefiting Austin-based LIVESTRONG and the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The group walked one lap around the Texas State Capitol building to raise awareness, education and survivorship for men’s health issues. Currently the U.S. campaign has over 143,000 participants and has raised $13 million, according to Donny Killian, U.S. Country Manager.
