Reed Ludwig's Movember Fundraising Tops Worldwide Individual Mark, Raised $96,321


REGINA - A Saskatchewan man had hoped to raise $50,000 for the Movember campaign for prostate cancer research and men's mental health.

Reed Ludwig's managers at work said they would shave their heads if he reached that goal.

Instead, Ludwig raised $96,321 — according to the website, that's more than any other individual in the world.

Ludwig says the experience has been overwhelming and the support has been unbelievable.

The maintenance electrician says he never had a moustache before and jokes that his wife is looking forward to him shaving it off.

More than $38 million was raised in Canada for the Movember campaign, more money than any other country.
