Septembeard Charity Raises Money For Prostate Cancer
Via Men’s Health reports:
That’s right: You officially have a legitimate excuse to stop shaving. Starting September 1, the folks behind the foundation Septembeard are urging men everywhere to sport beards for the entire month in support of prostate cancer research.
Art Wagner, a veteran marketing executive and recent prostate cancer survivor, formed Septembeard to drum up support for more research on one of the deadliest man killers. (It’s the second-leading cause of cancer death in American men, claiming over 33,000 lives this year.)
“After being diagnosed with prostate cancer, I was really lucky that I just happened to have a great team of doctors on my side to help me beat it, but how many other guys don’t have the same help? I just felt obligated to give back,” Wagner says.
