A message from Kurt R.
I participate in Movember every year to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer, as well as mental health and suicide prevention.
Since people know me for my beard, rather than do the whole “shave and grow a crappy mustache thing”, I let people vote on what colors I was going to dye my beard. Each dollar donated counted as a single vote. Last year, I raised almost $1800 and Pride and Seahawks beards tied, so I died my beard Pride rainbow colors one month and Seahawks colors the next! It was a lot of fun and definitely helped to raise awareness of the very serious health issues men face regularly. Last year I was especially thrilled to wear the Pride beard in loving support of all my LGBTQ friends and family. Everybody should be able to hold their head up in Pride and it was the last I could do! I would personally love for Pride to win this year, too!
