TORONTO — Craig Lesurf, president of Gillam Group, and Team Gillam’s 5Gs – Great Group of Guys & Gals from Gillam, took part in Movember once again this year to support men’s health.
Lesurf raised $13,000. Lesurf raised $40,000 last year and was one of the top 10 fundraisers in Canada. Team Gillam raised $18,500 and is sitting in fifth place in the Construction Challenge. Last year the team finished first in the team challenge in the construction industry across Canada, raising $47,625.
Lesurf shaved his facial hair to promote awareness for men’s health and specifically for testicular cancer as he is a 10-plus-year cancer survivor. This is only the seventh time in his life that he has shaved all of his facial hair. Members of Team Gillam either shaved and/or grew a stache to raise money for men’s health or participated in the MOVE fitness challenge.
“I do it because I have a purpose, besides trying to grow a stellar and ridiculous Mo that is, a desire to help raise MO Money all in support of the movement that is Movember which operates off of donations,” said Lesurf in an email to the Daily Commercial News. “The more donations we get, the more magnificent of a collective MO we can grow, it’s a scientific fact.”
