Please join 5 Health as we raise funds during #NoShaveNovember to support men's health and other causes.  The KOAA Team - Ira Cronin, Zach Thaxton, Grant Meech, and Sam Schreier - are ditching the razor for the entire month with the goal of raising money for a charity or organization of their choice.

Thank you for your support!


News 5 Anchor/Reporter Zach Thaxton's GoFundMe is in support of the Southern Colorado AIDS Project

A handful of men from KOAA 5 are participating this year in No-Shave November.  The goal is to raise awareness and funds for health issues that affect men in particular.  Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for specific men's health issues.

The organization I am supporting is the Southern Colorado AIDS Project.  Although HIV/AIDS has diminished from the public limelight since its height of prominence in the 1980s and early '90s, it still affects thousands in Colorado, particularly men.  More than 8,900 men in Colorado are living with HIV/AIDS, compared to just under 900 women.  Long-term survival with HIV/AIDS is now possible thanks to advancements in medical treatment -- Magic Johnson is an example of someone who has survived 30 years after being diagnosed.  But the disease has not gone away.

Help us bring awareness to men's health issues by supporting our fundraising efforts.

To donate to Grant's cause, visit his GoFundMe page: KOAA No Shave November
