Canada once again has come out on top as raising the most donations for Movember.

Nearly $37 million was raised during the month-long fundraiser for Prostate Cancer Canada, Movember’s Global Action Plan and the Canadian Male Health Network. Men grew moustaches to support the cause and raise awareness of men’s health issues.

Manitoba raised $901,088 with 7,649 registrants. Donations are still being collected and counted, with hopes of raising the provincial goal of $1 million.

“It is overwhelming to have such incredible support from Mo Bros and Mo Sistas all across the country,” said Pete Bombaci, national director of Movember Canada. “The conversations that have been had and the awareness that has been raised is truly making a difference. We are proud to have the opportunity to put the funds to work and a make an impact on men’s health.”
