Wilderness Walk for 11-8-2011: Game Day Edition

Did you know that in 2011, more than 240,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer? Another 33,000 will die from that same disease. A man will be diagnosed every 2.2 minutes, and a man will die from prostate cancer every 15.6 minutes.

Get it yet? It's Movember, and in addition to joining up with the Hockey Wilderness team, or donating to the same, Movember is about awareness. Whether you are young or old, please, go get your annual check up. It is critical to your health, both short and long term. Come on, tough guy, you aren't afraid of the doctor are you?

Please, help us out. Go get your check up. Today would be a great day to do so. Right after you go vote.

PS... if you happen to live in District 16 here in Minnesota, go vote for me.
