The Las Vegas Firefighters Local 1285 donated $1,900 to the Movember Foundation, which addresses some of men’s major health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer and mental health.

Throughout the month of November, firefighters sold specially designed shirts to raise money for the Movember Foundation. In addition to the fundraiser, firefighters grew out their mustaches and wore the shirts on and off duty to help raise awareness within the community.

The Movember Foundation is dedicated to combating men’s health issues on a global scale. In 13 years, the organization has funded more than 1,200 projects focused on men’s health around the world. Their goal is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25 percent by 2030.
