Today we would like to announce the beginning of the 3rd Annual FIS Movember fundraiser!

For those new to this fundraiser, the Movember Foundation is a charity that started in Australia in 2003 and is now working to tackle men’s health issues on a global scale. Through their work, the foundation helps address some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. (Movember Foundation, 2017). For more details about this charity, please check out their website:

A group of already slightly furry teachers and FIS Office staff have agreed to grow a mustache (or beard to shaved at the end) for the entire month of November to raise awareness and promote dialogue about men's health. 

If you would like to help contribute to this worthwhile cause, details for how to donate will be explained at an assembly this coming Thursday, November 9th.
