Part of our company culture at AK Material Handling Systems is our commitment to giving back to the community and one of our annual traditions in that commitment is participating in the “Movember” campaign. (Visit the AK Movember Team Page)
Movember is a movement that encourages participants to grow out their mustaches for the month of November to help boost public awareness of men’s health issues and raise funding for programs directed at cancer research and awareness efforts. So this year for Thanksgiving we have decided to “GIVE MO THANKS” to all of you, our clients, friends, and family in hopes of sparking conversations, generating donations, and most importantly spreading awareness for Movember. So when you are enjoying Thanksgiving this year don’t be afraid to spark conversations about these important men’s health statistics…
- Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged 15-35 years.
- 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
- A man with a father or brother who developed prostate cancer before 60 is twice as likely to also develop prostate cancer. Learn more
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at AK Material Handling Systems.
