A sigh of relief was audible on 2 December from the ladies in the Hong Kong office as the gallant Men of Movember returned from their hard fought month of moustache machismo. The moustaches may have gone but they will never be forgotten and will live on in our thoughts and minds. This year globally we have raised well over HK$ 400,000, which is a fantastic effort and there will also be a global Arup contribution of an additional 10% on top of that!
This monumental sum was put together by a band of 216 mobros throughout the Arup community, of which 25 came from our region (slightly down on last year). The moustache of the month must went to Mark Richardson for his magnificent and meticulously crafted moustache. Huge credit also goes to Stuart Cheung, who individually raised over HK$ 3,000 for his mesmerising Mo.
All in all it was another fantastic success story and all of the money raised goes towards fighting prostate cancer – the money raised in Hong Kong will all feed into the Hong Kong Cancer Fund.
