FRISCO, TEXAS – The start of moustache season is here once again and the North American 3 Eastern Hockey League (NA3EHL) and the Movember campaign is calling on all men and women to “Shave the Date: Movember 1.” Movemberparticipants like those in the NA3EHL are hosting local events across the US on Movember 1 to kick off the moustache movement to change the face of men’s health.
This year, the NA3EHL has announced that for the first time it will be a part of Movember with their own campaigninvolving all 13 teams and the over 300+ players in the league. The NA3EHL 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… as the official rules of Movember state, all Mo Bros (NA3EHL players), once registered, must begin clean-shaven on the 1st of Movember and grow just a moustache (no beards, no goatees) for the 30 days of November. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Also supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, the NA3EHL 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.
By joining one of the NA3EHL teams, fans will automatically be a part of the their team’s NA3EHL 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 are also encouraged to tweet pictures of their Mo's (mustaches) to @NA3EHL.
Participation is really simple – men and women register at Movember to grow or support the Mo. Once registered, Movember participants recruit friends, family and colleagues to donate to their Mo- growing efforts. Since the beginning of the initiative began in 2003 at total of 4,746,905 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have signed up and over $649 million dollars have been raised to fund 832 different men’s health projects. The Movember Foundation was recently ranked #72 out of the top 500 NGOs (non-governmental organizations) in the world.
Donations to your favorite team will accumulate under each teams account. 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. To follow/donate to your favorite team, click their link below:
