NAHL announces continuation of Movember campaign

October 29, 2014

The start of moustache season is here and the North American Hockey League (NAHL) and the Movember campaign is calling on all men and women to “Shave the Date: Movember 1.” Movember participants like those in the NAHL 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 North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced that for the third consecutive season, 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.  Last season, the Wichita Falls Wildcats raised the most funds of any NAHL team.

Here is how it works… as the official rules of Movember state, all Mo Bros (NAHL 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 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.

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 are also encouraged to tweet pictures of their Mo's (mustaches) to @NAHLHockey.

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. In 2013, the U.S. campaign saw over 219,000 men and women raising more than $20 million for the 577 programs that Movember funds. 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.
