The North American Hockey League (NAHL) Movember campaign for 2015 has come to an end. It was a fun month of league-wide participation from all the NAHL clubs and it was all about bringing back the mustache, having fun and doing it for a serious cause; men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
For the fourth straight season, the NAHL partners with Gongshow Gear and its member clubs were a part of Movember involving all 22 teams and the over 500+ players in the league. The players in the NAHL started November 1st clean-shaven and for the rest of the month, these players grew their facial hair to support the Movember campaign. The mustaches that were grown were a sight to behold.
It was a legendary month for the mo’s (players), and the NAHL is pleased to announce the winners of the NAHL’s Movember campaign.
In the team category, it was a two-horse race at the end as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights and the Minnesota Wilderness were in a race to the finish to see which team could raise the most funds.
Congratulations go to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights for raising the most funds and winning the NAHL’s Movember campaign. The Knights raised a total of $1,011 dollars.
In the individual player category, Minnesota Wilderness goalie Chase Munroe raised the most funds of any NAHL player with a total of $575 dollars. In 2nd place was Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights forward Aiden Beck with $375 dollars.
For raising the most funds, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights will receive a team prize package from Gongshow Gear. Thank you to all who supported the NAHL’s Movember campaign.
Here is wishing good luck to all the freshly shaven and clean faces of the NAHL players in December!
