Students participate in a Movember dodgeball fundraiser

Hillel Canada and Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi partnered last month to support the Movember initiative, during which men grow moustaches to raise awareness and money for prostate cancer research.

Although the two organizations have worked together many times in the past, this is the first time they have done so as a country-wide initiative.

Apart from asking for donations on behalf of each man growing a moustache, they ran fundraisers such as a dodgeball game and sales of fake moustaches.

In total, the groups raised $22,000.
