KA National Office Staff Raises $2,000 for Prostate Cancer Research
For the fifth straight year the men of the national administrative staff grew beards during National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month of September, the staff participated in Septembeard, raising a total of $2,215.99 from friends, family, and colleagues.
Septembeard is a not-for-profit organization with a simple, focused goal: eradicating prostate cancer, the second leading cause of cancer deaths in men, in our lifetime. The effort calls men to “Be a Hero. Grow a Beard.” This is a fundraising effort with a goal to “wipe prostate cancer off the face of the earth.” In 2016, Septembeard raised nearly $1,000,000 for numerous prostate cancer research programs.
