This November, I stepped out of my comfort zone for a very important cause. I'm not usually the type to sport any facial hair, but for the month of what is now globally known as "Movember," I decided to put my heart on my sleeve and grow a symbol of solidarity against threats to men's health.... in the middle of my face. I successfully grew and endured a formidable "trucker-stache" with the support (and teasing, with fun poked at my apparent resemblance to Hulk Hogan) of my team; Genuine Health raised over $18,000. My mo' has been fun and annoying, and it definitely isn't my regular style, but I believe 100 per cent in the style in which Movember stimulates action and awareness.
