Since 1978, his hair has greyed, he’s grown up, had kids, become a successful doctor and started a wonderful charity. Notably absent in that list of activities: shaving his upper lip.

Founder and President Dr. Mark Gardner will shave his moustache for the first time in over thirty years as we try to raise $2500, illuminating the mysteries of his upper lip to all. Sons Adam and Noah have lain awake at night thinking about the possibility of a clean-shaven father and truly believing it might never have happened.
