During November each year, ‘Movember’ is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the United States and around the world. With their Mo's, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues. This year, the North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced that it will be a part of Movember with their own campaign involving all 24 teams and the over 550+ players in the league.
The NAHL Movember campaign is all about bringing back the moustache, having fun and doing it for a serious cause; men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Here is how it works: First, players in the NAHL will start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Also supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, the NAHL and their Movember Mo Bros raise funds for awareness for their Mo-growing efforts. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November.
Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. The moustache is the ribbon, the symbol which generates conversations, awareness and raise funds for men's health. By joining one of the NAHL teams, fans will automatically be a part of the their team’s NAHL Network page which is a great way to connect with the other teams and individuals and keep up to date with the other Movember Moustache merchants.
Fans and players alike are encouraged to register at www.movember.com. Once registered, you are ready to help Movember continue to Change the Face of Men’s Health. Donations to your favorite team will accumulate under each teams account. The team with the most funds raised will win a team prize package from Gongshow Gear. Although Mo Bros don’t begin to grow until Movember 1st, October is the most important time for Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to register.

In 2011, over 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world got on board, raising $126.3 million USD. Each year, in increasing numbers, communities across America are embracing the moustache and getting on board with Movember. The levels and types of support vary from one community to the next, but the combined impact of these grassroots efforts play a vital role in helping Movember achieve its awareness and fundraising goals.
