Fifty-six staff members pledged to grow a mustache for the month of November, and together they raised a total of $1,500 for the Movember Foundation. In addition to donations from GNPS staff, a New York State police officer who heard about the program at JFK added to the schools’ contribution with a generous donation from the New York State Troopers Memorial Fund.

The Movember Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to saving and improving the lives of men around the world by supporting research and services, with a focus on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health issues.
