We Raised Money and Awareness with a Movember
‘XCGrowers’ team surpassed our fundraising goal with $2,180
raised! The dream team consisted of seven confident, facial hair
growing machines whose dedication to the cause never waivered,
even in the face of disgruntled girlfriends and wives, teen
‘stache references, and itchy faces. Tom Williams, Dan Brenner,
Connor Davis, Chris Mitchell, Darin Shore, and Ben Beelen, thank
you for donating your faces to this great cause. Everyone else,
THANK YOU for donating your money and support to help us surpass
Tyler Mahn (second from right) organizes this Movember team every
year partly because he thinks he looks fantastic with a
moustache, but more seriously because we’ve all had our life or
know someone whose life has been drastically impacted by prostate
cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, or suicide. Too many
men ignore the symptoms and signs that something is wrong until
it’s too late. If you are a man reading this (or are next to
one), put the responsibility of your health into your own hands, get
informed, and see your physician for an annual check-up. Early
detection is and always will be a major component in your
long-term health, along with choosing a lifestyle that optimizes
XCG began participating in Movember as a company back in 2013, we
have raised over $13,500 and have helped to fund more than 1,200
mens’ health projects around the world.
We Built Homes with Habitat for Humanity
past fall, all three offices of XCG picked up hammers and got to
work to help Habitat for Humanity build homes in Kitchener (Sept.
6), Kingston (Sept. 7), and Edmonton (Oct. 12).
Kitchener team (pictured) got to work for Habitat Waterloo Region
and raised over $3,600 while completing a number of home projects
at the development. This generous donation means several more
local families will be able to purchase safe, decent, affordable
homes this year providing stability for both parents and
children. The XCG Edmonton office participated in a build at
the Carter Place site in Edmonton installing beautiful flooring
for one of the homes. The XCG Kingston team joined a Habitat crew
in that community to help add interior finishes to a new home.
XCG is proud to be able to give back to our local communities –
and also have some fun as a team!
