This year's Movember fundraisers easily surpassed previous years.
 
After a November of raising awareness for men's health, Fort Saskatchewan Jiffy Lube owner Jim Martin and his crew raised $14,700 to support the Movember cause.
 
"It was an outstanding outcome, but it's thanks to our customers, employees, friends, family and local business that helped us raise money," said Martin. "Over the six years of doing this, we're now sitting at roughly $61,700."
 
Multiple events were put on, including a charity hockey game that brought in $4,889 plus over $4,000 from fundraiser nights and silent auctions.
 
November 2017 surpassed their previous record of $11,400 set last year.
