MadsenFamily-563108350580fAs Greg Madsen starts his cancer treatment next week, let’s get serious with Greg and have some fun — we invite you to accept the Madvember Maddog Challenge. As his friends we can keep Greg and his family on our minds by participating in the Madvember Maddog Challenge and make a donation to the Maddog Family Fund. The fund will help with things like allowing Greg’s family to travel during his treatment.

All can participate – Mad-Bros and Mad-Sistas of all ages.

Either with your MADstachery or MADmoving efforts or both. Grow a Moustasche and or Move every day for 30 minutes during the 30 days of Madvember. Let’s get hairy and move for Maddog!

MADstache and or MADbeard

  • Start clean shaven on November 1st (or keep growing if you already have one)
  • Grow and groom your moustache or for the 30 days of Madvember
  • Ladies and kids can get creative (especially for their pictures)
  • Alternative – grow out your arm pits or don’t shave your legs for a month….


  • Move every day for 30 minutes for 30 days this Madvember.
  • Get moving! Big or small, any kind of physical activity counts.

We can all join in solidarity with Maddog and his family by participating, donating to the fund, talking about our participation, laughing at our new facial hair, sharing by sending in pictures of our progress and MADmoving in action, posting on social media and inviting others to participate.


Cut and paste option – Donate through Crowdrise —

We hope you join the Madvember Maddog Challenge.

Love to all,
Team Maddog

P.S.S. Some of you may have heard of the Movember movement, which raises funds for men’s health issues with a heavy focus during the month of November, while we respect and admire the international Movember movement, we have a more pressing personal cause we are asking you to support.
