Santa Clara County Member Raises Funds, Awareness for “Movember”

Dave Jones combined his love of cycling and desire to improve awareness of men's health issues by participating in "Movember." During the month of November, men sprout mustaches to bring attention to male health concerns, namely prostate cancer.

Jones, a member of the Santa Clara County Engineers and Architects Association, held the Martin Murphy Mustache Ride on November 23. About 25 bicyclists participated and donated to the cause.

“Increasing physical activity is an important way to reduce a wide range of health issues for men and women,” Jones said. He raised nearly $500 in his first effort, which he hopes to expand upon next year. Learn more about Jones' Movember efforts
