Thursday, November 1, 2012

From Matthew W.:

November 1 marks the beginning of the 10th anniversary of Movember, a worldwide campaign to build awareness and raise funds for men’s health issues, and in particular, for prostate and testicular cancer. In nine years, $299 million has been raised, and in 2011, 854,000 participants raised over $126 million.

This year, the athletes of MPH plan to get involved and support the cause! A fitting team name has been selected: Hang Power Stache. Everyone is encouraged to participate—the more, the hairier!

To join our team:

  • Register here, and make sure that you select our team (Hang Power Stache).
  • On November 1, you will be expected to shave completely. For the whole month of November, you will continue shaving everything but your mustache.
  • During this time, as friends and family inquire about your facial hair, you can talk with them about the causes that you are supporting and direct them to your sponsorship page.
  • You can also register as a woman! Select the “Mo Sista” option.

For those who choose not to participate, please show your support with a donation. You can go to the team page and select either the whole team or a specific participant to support.
