From Press Release

Mustaches from across the county helped raise a record breaking $116,628 to close out Week 6 of Lax Stache Madness. The effort was ignited by a powerful video from Ken Clausen surrounding the 8th anniversary of the passing of HF™ founder Nick Colleluori prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.Mustache madness

“Seeing the success that we have had this year has been one of the most incredible and humbling experiences. Over the past 6 years, together we have raised over $500,000 to support cancer patients and their families through the tireless efforts of the HEADstrong Foundation™. This year has been filled with some amazing stories and has brought many new fundraisers, teams and supporters. We are so proud of everyone’s efforts and could not be more thrilled.” says Ken Clausen, LMM founder

2014 has been a milestone year for the Lax Stache Madness, with over 485 participants representing over 52 fundraising teams. Over 25 individual fundraisers successfully surpassing the $1,000 fundraising mark with Rich Moses of HEADstrong Lax Texas individually raising over $10,000 and Friends of University of Delaware Men’s Lacrosse setting the all-time leading team fundraising record, raising over $26,000 to support the cause.

“We wish to extend our sincere appreciation to the fundraising teams, growers, donors, sponsors and supporters that were involved with LMM this year. We could not have done this without you. Thank you so much for being relentless helping us to make Stache history.” – Ken Clausen
