Movember & the EPPD

If you stop by the EPPD this month or come across an Eden Prairie officer around town, you may notice that our male officers appear to have forgotten to shave. In fact, they are not shaving their facial hair for a reason – Movember.

Globally, November has been designated as the month to raise awareness for men’s health. The month has been coined “Movember” for the various mustaches that many men grow to show support for the research and awareness of men’s health issues.

In 2017, Movember events in the United States raised $17.1 million which goes towards raising awareness around various men’s health issues, specifically testicular cancer, prostate cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
