The Taz Show is partaking in Sober October. Absolutely no alcoholic beverages for 31 days.
Here’s the deal with Sober October:
Who are the crazy people behind Sober October? We are a casual collective of entrepreneurs and aspiring philanthropists’ who have spent a lifetime on Canada’s patios. We know that lethargic hungover feeling all too well and believe that going sober for just one month will do wonders for our bodies and bank accounts. Sober October Canada is a fundraising event for a Canadian charity – Canadian Cancer Society.
October is a great month to cleanse the heart and soul and re-focus on family and work alike. This month long sober commitment is a way to compete with friends, family or co-workers while raising money for our selected charities.
OUR MISSION: As an organization, our specific mandate is to fund research and education programs focused on prevention and screening for major diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease. These programs should focus on nutrition, physical activity, limited exposure to toxic environmental substances and mental health/well-being as the primary sources to reduce the risk of developing a major disease.
SOBER OCTOBER 2014: Our organization is supporting the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) prevention and screening initiatives. 100% of all funds donated through your personal or team campaigns will go to the CCS and tax receipts for donations above $20 will be issued by Dec. 31, 2014.
