Mid Penn Bank and Penn State Health’s Department of Urology are holding their eighth annual No Shave November fundraiser. Since 2016, the partnership between these two organizations has raised more than $620,000 for prostate cancer research. Mid Penn Bank hopes to raise over $1.1 million by 2026.

During the month of November, employees from both organizations and community partners ditch their razors to help bring awareness to the cause by growing out their facial hair. Prostate cancer is the second-leading cause of death among men. All funds raised go toward prostate cancer research performed by Dr. Jay D. Raman, interim chair of the Department of Urology at Penn State Health. The public is welcome to help by making donations via Penn State Health’s donation page: https://bit.ly/3sB5s3K.

“I’m ready to grow my beard! Many of us know someone with — or have lost a loved one to — prostate cancer, the second-leading cause of death for men,” said Mark Ketch, senior vice president and regional president at Mid Penn Bank. “It’s our honor at Mid Penn Bank to do our part to end this scourge. I want to thank our tremendous community partner, the Tower Porter Improvement Organization, and the team here at Mid Penn Bank for their inspiring dedication and commitment to No Shave November.”

In Mid Penn Bank’s Northern Region, Tower Porter Improvement Organization has joined the No Shave November campaign as a community partner.

No Shave November kicked off on Nov. 1 and will conclude on Nov. 30.
