As part of Movember, McGill linguists are growing mustaches to raise money for prostate cancer research. The McGill Linguistics Movember team consists of Alan Bale, David-Etienne Bouchard, Brian Buccola, Jamie Findlay, David Fleischer, Dan Goodhue, Michael Hamilton, Stephane Hurtubise, Moti Lieberman, Jenny Loughran (fund-raising), Tobin Skinner, and Lance Williams. So far the team has raised $600, ranking 12th of 24 teams at McGill––an especially good achievement considering the relatively small size of our department.

The team would like to thank everyone who has donated so far, and encourage those who haven’t yet to check out their team page to donate electronically (plus you can see their excellent mustaches), or see any team member to donate in person.

The team will be having an end-of-Movember event on Thursday evening after Rick Nouwen’s talk (5:30ish, location TBD). And stay tuned to next week’s McLing for a possible team photo!
