NBC Right Now Team Kicks Off the Month of Movember, Leaving Razors Behind

Posted: Updated:

NBC RIGHT NOW-  Not only is November election time, it's that time of the year when men start off the month fresh faced and toss aside the razors for the remainder of the month.

A group of NBC Right Now news and production employees are taking part in this year's Movember challenge, calling themselves the "NBC Right Grow" news team to raise awareness for men's health.

Dustin Meehan, Matt Funk, Ian Greene, Marcus McCoy, and Allen Lintvedt are stepping out from behind the camera to raise money for prostate and testicular cancer, adding their own little twist.

"My friend Ian and I decided to do Movember.  Both of us have had a beard for quite a while. I think I haven't shaved since the 90's," said Lintvedt.

"It's not a huge sacrifice to just take some facial hair off and raise a little bit of money for a very important cause," said Funk.

"It was quite a bonus to get them to go clean shaven. It was worth it just to see them without those huge beards. Then we can have a beard off afterwards to see who can grow their beards the fastest.. All for charity," Meehan.

Movember programs are focused on awareness and education, living with and beyond cancer, and research to achieve our vision of an everlasting impact on the face of men's health.

Since 2003, three million participants have raised over $446MM for the cause, funding more than 570 programs globally, with official Movember campaigns taking place in 21 countries.
