Movember and Movember Canada are annual events that last through the month of November. It is all about men trying to grow a mustache for the month and trying to raise money for prostate cancer. Movember Canada is becoming more of a common thing, especially when it comes to hockey teams. I am interning for the Grizzlies Junior A hockey and most of the players are extremely excited about participating. Every week a photographer comes in and takes updated pictures of them so that everyone can become more involved. They also have boxes at every game with their face on them where people can donate money for the cause. Last game they also had “mustache cupcakes” and all the money went to charity.
Most of the players off the ice have a pretty classy style. This could be because game days they are supposed to suit up. I have also noticed them in dress coats and dark bold glasses are also something that I have seen many of the players wear. These glasses just go so well with suits, this look is classy, clean, and makes a statement. It’s funny because junior A hockey players are typically from age 17 to 21 and most of the players on this team are unable to grow a mustache but the fact that they try, and try in order to raise money for a charity is pretty cool. The support around town is fantastic. Many people show up to these games to support the boys and the cause. They were able to sell all the “mustache cupcakes” and did I mention they were AMAZING! So if you have the opportunity to support this great cause, to support someone who is taking part in Movember, and to support those who are fighting or who have fought against prostate cancer, grow a MO or make a donation.
