Prizes were awarded for each obstacle passed, but if you completed the whole course, you walked away with a big prize.

On Tuesday (Nov. 22) Prendergast School held their annual Mustache Assembly for Men’s Health, where they presented the proceeds collected from their “mustache sales” for Griffin Hospital’s Health Initiative for Men (HiM).
Accepting the donation on behalf of HiM & Griffin Hospital were Frank Michaud (HiM Fund, Valley Community Foundation) and Tricia O’Malley (Executive Director of Development, Griffin Hospital).
The Health Initiative for Men is an effort to help inspire men to have an annual physical and to raise awareness about men’s health issues such as prostate cancer and colorectal cancer. Ansonia Students Raise $525 For Men’s Health Initiative | Valley Independent Sentinel
