Copart set out to change the face of men’s health issues by participating in Movember. During the month of November, Copart employees formed 21 teams and raised $3,378 for the Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation advocates for men’s health issues by encouraging participants to grow out their facial hair and start conversations about the less talked about topic of men’s health. Business support specialist Dillon Allan organized the Copart Movember.
“The movement started conversations in the company that otherwise wouldn’t have happened,” said Allan.
One example of this is Business Support Specialist Nicholas Gormican who spoke about Movember to many people in his daily routine.
“My mustache was so ridiculous that I had to preface every conversation with raising awareness for men’s health,” said Gormican. “It also started a conversation about the movement with my family over Thanksgiving.”
The money raised by Copart will help the Movember Foundation contribute towards research of various types of cancers that affect men as well as research to improve mental and physical health. The movement also helped build stronger relationships at Copart.
“My favorite part of Movember was being part of my team,” said Gormican. “Having those daily interactions and building camaraderie.”
This was the first Movember sponsored by the Copart Culture Cabinet. Employees and teams were rewarded for various achievements such as mustache of the week and most money raised by a team and individual.
