Staff Raises Awareness For Men’s Health

John F. Kennedy staff members show off their facial-hair growth.

Staff at the John F. Kennedy and Great Neck North High School joined the Movember movement to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues.

Fifty-six staff members pledged to grow a mustache during the month of November, and together they raised $1,500 for the Movember Foundation, a nonprofit 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.

In addition to donations from staffers, 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.
