Leaders from more than 15 franchises growing mustaches for
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (November 11, 2013) -
Franchising industry leaders from across the country are uniting
this November and growing moustaches as part of Movember, the
global men's health charity that raises awareness and funds for
men's health issues to fight prostate and testicular cancer and
mental health challenges.
"The franchising industry is a tight-knit community that likes
to rally together around important causes," said Matthew Bogart,
FranMo team captain. "Movember is a fun way for us to support
a cause that will impact all of us in one way or another because
one in four men will get or already have prostate or testicular
cancer in our lifetime."
Team FranMo was created in 2011 under the leadership of Bogart,
franchise consultant at FranChoice and business development manager
at Franchise.com, and Tim Courtney, vice president of network
development at CruiseOne®.
Participating franchisors include International Franchise
Association, CruiseOne, Franchise.com, Greenbaum Marketing
Communications, Caring Senior Service, AAMCO, The UPS Store,
Process Peak, QW Express, HigherVisibility LLC, Franchise Business
Review, Entrepreneur Media, Franchise Times, Franchise Payments
Network, FRM Solutions, Primrose Schools, Wild Birds Unlimited,
MatchPoint and Initial Impression.
Since 2003, three million participants have raised more than
$446 million for the cause, funding more than 570 programs
globally, with official Movember campaigns taking place in 21
countries. In 2012, more than 209,000 Americans participated and
raised approximately $21 million.
"We are encouraging our franchisees, suppliers, vendors and
corporate partners to get involved and help make a difference,"
said Courtney. "We are confident we will exceed our goal and help
fellow bros in need."
Team FranMo hopes to raise $50,000. If you are interested in
