October 25th was this year’s official Toronto launch party with Movember and Sons at Edition/Richmond. The evening was complete with performances – such as tap-dancing and special announcements for the coming month.

“Movember is proud to announce that it will address both prostate cancer and male mental health with funds raised in 2012. Mental health is a new addition for Movember Canada and a critical issue for Canadian men with 1 in 5 men experiencing a mental health issue this year.”

A short video called ‘IF’ by Rudyard Kipling was featured. I thought it to be pretty moving and reminded me of my ‘Pa and son’ relationship with my own father. Give it a watch…

The message in the video is Knowledge is Power’, like the knowledge that is passed down from father to son. It’s important to note that there also comes a time when the son should pass knowledge back to his father – such as the awareness of prostate cancer and importance of regular screening!
