Hillside Officers Participating in "Movember" Charity Drive
Chief Louis Panarese and the officers from the Hillside Police Department are actively showing their support of "Movember" this month by growing beards and moustaches. Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of mens health issues, such as depression in men, prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health." By encouraging men (whom the charity refers to as "Mo Bros") to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Chief Panarese has agreed to go one step further. Officers that are willing to donate $100.00 to this charity will be permitted to grow beards as well during the month of November to raise money for this worthy cause.
