Mo Bros and Mo Sistas of Indianapolis and Indiana, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Thank you for your endless enthusiasm. Thank you for your amazing financial contributions. Thank you for your record-breaking attendence and participation. Thank you for tremendous word-of-mouth and social network promotion. And thank you for an amazing, record-breaking, Movember 2012.
It took some time, but the numbers are in! We suspected this would be the case well before our record-busting (and blackout-threatened) Month End Gala Party at the City Market, and all suspicions have been confirmed - this year was MovemberIndy’s best yet.
In 2012, we saw well over 2,800 fine Hoosiers join the cause to change the face of men’s health; nearly 1,400 of them from Indianapolis alone! Together, we raised nearly $93,000 in Indianapolis, and statewide that total climbs to over $154,000!
Even more impressive than the totals are the percentages. Compared to our then-best 2011 totals, Indy is showing amazing growth in both its generosity and participation. Statewide participation grew 42%. Indianapolis participation outpaced the US growth curve (45%) by increasing our numbers a full 65% – the second largest increase in major cities nationwide! (bested only by our windy neighbor, Chicago)
Once again, THANK YOU, INDY!
With this news, we’ll be winding MovemberIndy.com down for the coming months. As Movember 2013 approaches, though, keep an eye on us to come back, bigger and better than ever! We’re only just getting started, Indiana.
