Local businesses announce Movember

LAKE PLACID - Men, here's a way you can do nothing, and do it for a cause. Don't shave during the month of November, and you could help raise money for men's health awareness at Adirondack Medical Center.

Tim Robinson of Terry Robards Wines & Spirits has challenged Paul Varga of WSLP-FM, to a No Shave Movember to raise money for men's health awareness at Adirondack Medical Center. This movement is an attempt to localize Movember, a charity organization known for raising funds for men's health in fun ways (us.movember.com).

Each team will have donation tins at participating businesses around the area throughout the month of November, with weekly fundraising updates every Friday during Varga's morning show. The main competition will be between Robinson and Varga, but they welcome any outside participation.

Anyone interested in supporting the cause is asked to join the Facebook event page, "No Shave Movember!" No financial investment is required and joining the Facebook page does not mean particpants have to grow facial hair.
