KEYC NEWS 12 (Nov. 30, 2018) – As the month comes to a close, so does “No Shave November. Men attended Pub 500 to say goodbye to their facial hair.
To celebrate the end of “No-Shave November” men got their ‘staches & beards shaved down. Including our very own Dion Cheney!
“We’re raising awareness for men’s health and men’s cancer, particularly testicular and prostate cancer so we’ve got survivors here tonight we’ve got people here that want to spread the word and help our men get to understand their health better and go get checked out at the doctor, so that hopefully we can catch cancer early and cure it,” Grow MANkato co-founder Chris Harstad said,
All funds raised will go to Grow MANkato to help support the gift cards in the JZ Cancer Fund Care Box.
“Jonathan Zierdt and I are the co-founders of Grow MANkato and he’s still battling his cancer right now so the funds that we raise through Grow MANkato go to his foundation that he created and his foundation has a care box that’s given to every single cancer patient here in Mankato. Our funds go to help fund gift cards that are placed within that box so we’re helping our local cancer patients here,” Harstad added.
This is the fifth year for Grow MANkato and each year they hope to raise more money for the cause.
