Douglas Robertson Jr.

Message from Dougie Robertson III:

In honor of my father, myself along with friends and family are participating in no shave November (otherwise known as Movember) to raise awareness and funding for men's health, specifically colon cancer screenings. We will be growing out our facial hair for the entire month. If you would like, please donate to the cause on this page. Every dollar is greatly appreciated and goes directly to colon cancer research. Thank you all! (pics will be posted at the end of the month!)
