Kamloops, BC – The wait is over and the results are in! Although the generous support from Kamloops raised a total of $4,266, Mayor Peter Milobar and the City of Kamloops have fallen
short of Prince George’s $5,718 in the friendly Movember challenge that was issued early in November.

“Congratulations to Mayor Hall and the City of Prince George,” says Milobar. “I’m proud of the money and awareness we generated for men’s health and am looking forward to shaving!”

The punishment? Blazers fans can expect to see our Mayor sporting a Cougars jersey for the ceremonial puck drop at the upcoming home game against Prince George on February 19,
2017.

“The real winner in this is Movember,” says Prince George Mayor Lyn Hall. “It’s great to see everyone rally around such an important cause. I would like to thank Mayor Milobar for issuing
this worthwhile challenge and extend my appreciation to everyone who donated in both cities.”

The BC Battle Royal raised a total of $9,994 for the Movember Foundation, the global charity that raises funds and awareness for men’s health. Funds raised go towards supporting innovative, world-class men’s health programs in four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity. To date, the Movember Foundation has funded 1,000 men’s health projects.
