Thirty-three of the 68 male members of the Nova Scotia judiciary participated as a team, which raised a total of $18,463. There is no tally yet on the number of lawyers who participated, but they raised more than $71,500.

Justice Jamie Saunders, who spearheaded the judicial team, said many male judges serving on the bench are in the prime age range when men are more likely to develop prostate cancer. He urged the group of men  to consider early detection and treatment. “We hope that our involvement in this annual Movember event will encourage other men our age, in all walks of life, to take prostate cancer more seriously and get that medical checkup they have been putting off for too long,” he said.
