Movember Nuclear Pride

Team NUvember Network Raises Over $53,000 for Movember!

This year, for the first time, the CNA got involved in Movember, an international annual fundraiser that raises awareness and funds for prostate cancer research, men’s health issues in general and mental health.

But it wasn’t enough for just the CNA to participate; we wanted to get our nuclear industry family on board too, so we set up Team NUvember.

The Team NUvember network connected 354 individuals across the Canadian nuclear industry from 14 separate fundraising teams across CNA member companies. Our friends at Cameco, Bruce Power, Ontario Power Generation, and Tetra Tech, plus professional organizations and academic institutions participated as growers or supporters.

Collectively, this network of NUvember fundraisers raised over $53,000 as of November 30th. We had a lot of fun tracking our Mo’gress and doing something in support of a cause so close to our industry.

Thank you to all our Mo’bros and Mo’sistas for participating and supporting! See you next year.

Happy Movember from CNA!

Grow your ‘Stache for Cash – Team NUvember Kick Off!

Meet Diane Williams. She is a Mechanical Maintainer at Bruce Power and a dedicated Mo’ Sista.

When asked if there was a story behind her decision to tattoo a moustache on her index finger, Diane said:

“Not really, the guys here in the shop that I work in asked me what I was going to do for Movember.  So I came up with this idea because I have a lot of tattoos already.  I decided to dedicate it to my three older brothers, which are all very healthy!  I don’t think they thought I would actually do it.

Apparently I was right, one of the guys just admitted he didn’t think I would do it!”

Thanks for sharing your Mo’story, Diane!

Diane is a member of Women-in-Nuclear (WiN) Canada. Thanks for WiN for connecting us with Diane.
