St. John's Medical Center is proud to support the launch of the St. John's Hospital Foundation's Men's Health Fund!  

This fund is designed to provide support to men in our community who: 

• Are in need of preventative health services but cannot afford them 

• Need support for travel to medical treatments 

• Are in active treatment and need financial support for items like childcare, groceries, medicine, etc., while in active treatment.

Supported requests will include prostate and other screenings, annual wellness checkups, travel expenses for medical care, medication, and other areas of men's health care. 

Support men's health by participating in or donating to No Shave November, a fun-spirited competition open to St. John's Medical Center employees who are playful enough to grow a moustache to bring awareness to the Men's Health Fund!  

Here's How It Works: 

Participants started on November 1st with a clean shave. Throughout the month, they will post moustache progress photos. Each participant invites friends, co-workers, and family members to make a donation in their honor to the Men's Health Fund.   

For every dollar raised, St. John's Medical Center has committed to match that, up to $1000! That means your gift doubles and your impact doubles! 

There are many ways to support the launch of the St. John's Hospital Foundation Men's Health Fund! Tell your friends about this new fund that will help community members, grow a moustache to bring awareness to Men's Health, make a gift in support of your co-workers who are participating in No Shave November, post photos to social media and use the hashtag #SJMCstache, and talk about the importance of screenings and annual check ups.   

On Friday, November 30th all are welcome to join us for a No Shave November celebration in the Wellness Flex Space from 10-11am.  Prizes will be awarded for best moustache, most supporters, most funds raised, and many more comical categories! Stop by for delicious treats, photo opportunities, and the awards. 

BONUS: Anyone who signs up to participate by growing a moustache or makes a gift of $20 or more will receive a special gift from St. John's Hospital Foundation. The Foundation is giving out beanies with the Foundation's 20th Anniversary logo and mustache pins! 

Questions? Stop by the Foundation (POB Suite 213) or call  307-739-7529. Thank you for bringing awareness to men's health and helping us raise funds to support community members who need help accessing health care.  

Community sponsors: In addition to the Medical Center's matching challenge of $1,000, Big O Tires and Teton Barber are sponsoring the launch of the Men's Health Fund. Big O Tires is donating $1 for every single tire changed during the month of November. Teton Barber is donating $1 from every hair cut during the month of November. We are thrilled to have their support!
