During the month of November 2017, NIKA staff members participated in Movember, an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide.
At the end of the Movember event, the best mustaches took home top prizes, earning a donation in their name to the charity of each winner’s choice. The first place winner, Elias Zeilah, earned $1500 for his charity. Second place winner Javier Oliu earned $1000 for his selected organization. Third place winner Tom Williams and all the runners-up each earned $500 for the charity of their choice. All donations were contributed by NIKA in support of the event.
