We are three life-long friends driven by the chance to battle the Canadian elements for the awareness and benefit of men’s health. Each of us, Jordan Gildersleeve, Kevin Shaw, and Ben Frisby, has personally been affected by men’s cancers, which has motivated us, along with our bond, to do something epic and give back to our community. The Moustache Ride Across Canada’s goal will be to stimulate people to talk about and raise money for men’s health by leveraging the Movember movement and by challenging ourselves to brave the Canadian winter... on bicycles.
We will set out from Vancouver on the morning of October 17th with the objective of reaching Toronto by November 29th, the evening of Toronto's Movember Gala where thousands of Toronto supporters will come to celebrate another successful year. Along the way, we will be stopping at local news stations, schools, and events, raising awareness and funds for men’s cancers and health issues. We’ve set the audacious goal of raising $100,000 dollars for Movember and the organizations it supports. We will be doing this under the name of "The Moustache Ride Across Canada".
