PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — It was a ceremonial event to cap off Movember, in which Mayor Lyn Hall was at the mercy of George the Barber, losing his mustache and celebrating his win over Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar.

At the start of the month, Mayor Milobar challenged Mayor Hall to see who could raise the most funds for men’s health.

Kamloops raised a total of $4,266, Mayor Milobar and the City of Kamloops have fallen short of Prince George’s $5,718 in the friendly Movember challenge that was issued early in November.

“Congratulations to Mayor Hall and the City of Prince George,” says Mayor Milobar. “I’m proud of the money and awareness we generated for men’s health and am looking forward to shaving!”

“The real winner in this is Movember,” says Mayor Hall. “It’s great to see everyone rally around such an important cause. I would like to thank Mayor Milobar for issuing this worthwhile challenge and extend my appreciation to everyone who donated in both cities.”

All the money raised by both mayors will go toward men’s health.
