Things look to be getting a bit hairy for Tri-Ed President and CEO Pat Comunale. Comunale is taking on the challenge to make November his hairiest month in about 40 years by sprouting a moustache to raise awareness and funds for the Movember Foundation.
A global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives, the Movember Foundation has, since 2003, raised $650 million and funded more than 1,000 programs focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. Tri-Ed, An Anixter Company, has taken on a personal pledge to support men’s health and honor its colleague and friend, Bill Brown, who lost his battle with cancer in August.
“I’m very proud to take on this challenge,” Comunale said. “The Movember Foundation brings leading experts together from around the world to collaborate on solutions that will fundamentally change the way men’s health issues are treated and supported. I hope that by making this November my hairiest month, we can all raise funds together for a great cause and honor Bill Brown’s memory in the process.”
