Men put motivation behind mustaches
Placeholder Image
The worldwide Movember movement – which encourages men to grow mustaches in November and use their facial hair as a conversation starter to raise awareness of men’s health issues – is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The campaign has taken root in McMinnville with a group of individuals who wish to raise awareness and money for the fight against prostate cancer.Rodney Boyd, general manager and CEO of McMinnville Electric System, is one of those people. Boyd was diagnosed with prostate cancer in early 2012 and, as a result, has become an advocate for the cause.“We want to start a conversation locally about prostate cancer,” said Boyd.
