Mercury raises money for mens health
Mercury Payment Systems employees have contributed almost $7,000 to the campaign called Movember, an effort named for the moustaches men grow in November while raising money to fight prostate and other cancers that affect men.
This year, on Nov. 1, 56 Mercury men volunteered to get shaved in a kickoff event held at Mercurys headquarters in Durango and the Denver office. Their goal will be to raise $10,000, which will be matched by the companys philanthropy arm, MercuryGives. MoMercury team members have until the end of the month to grow their moustaches to encourage donations. A party will be held in December at Steamworks Brewing Co. The event is open to the public and will feature awards and moustache shaving.
