Members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment who took part in the Movember fundraising are proud to announce that a total of $10,350 was raised during the campaign to support men's health and suicide prevention. Appreciation to all the members who participated either by growing a moustache or by supporting those who did as well as to a long list of local businesses who support this cause. Thankfully, those members who are not gifted in their ability to grow a moustache are clean shaven for Dec. 1.

(Original release) - Members of the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have entered into a competition with area detachments within the boundaries of OPP Central Region to support the Movember fundraising event. During the month of November members will be participating in a number of community level events such as shaving off their beloved moustache, just to let it grow back demonstrating their support for Men's Health.

This charity is changing the face of men's health by taking on the topics of mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Movember has been well supported by the detachment members over recent years and members feel strongly enough to challenge neighbouring detachments to do the same.

So if you see an OPP officer in your community who has lost or starting a moustache in the month of November, you will now know why.

Officers from the Southern Georgian Bay Detachment will be supporting "Team Southern Georgian Bay" and anyone in the community wishing to support their cause can pledge their support at
