'This month I looked kind of like a werewolf': Grow Your Mo 2016
EUGENE, Ore. - Men who grew their mo's in November to spread awareness about prostate cancer and help local cancer patients were ready to have a smooth face again.
"It's just a really lighthearted fun way to raise some extra funds for patients in our community right before the holidays," said Amy Johnston, executive director of the Oregon Cancer Foundation.
Grow Your Mo has raised more than $11,000 in 2 years.
The Golden Razor Award was handed out Thursday at the community celebration held at Oakshire Brewing to the team with the most money raised last month.
"Usually I am pretty well shaved but this month I looked kind of like a werewolf," said Dr. Charles Anderson with Willamette Valley Cancer Institute. "It was interesting and very itchy but a lot of fun the whole way along."
Over 4,000 votes were cast this year.
First place winner was the Willamette Valley Cancer Institute, followed by the Eugene Emeralds and Thurston High School.
The NBC 16 team placed 5th.
