Get ready hockey fans, Movember is coming.
The Movember Foundation challenges men to sign up at Movember.com and grow moustaches during the month of November in an attempt to spark conversation and raise funds for men's health programs. Since its inception, the foundation has reported a total of over 4 million moustaches grown worldwide and more than $550 million raised while funding over 800 programs in 21 countries. The fundraising and awareness promotions improve the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems, according to Movember Foundation CEO & co-founder Adam Garone.
