Have you all noticed the growing moustaches on the faces of Jamie McBain
, Brandon Sutter
and Derek Joslin
? Well, you may have wondered why these normally clean-shaven men have decided to sprout facial hair above the upper lip.
Starting November 1, our three generous Carolina Hurricanes players began participation in Movember, an annual, month-long charity event. Movember is a global movement that raises money and awareness for prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. Each man that participates in the event is called a “Mo Bro,” and each woman that supports her man in the growing of his moustache is a “Mo Sista.”
The rules of Movember are simple. Each Mo Bro begins the month of November clean-shaven, and registers on the Movember website. For the entire month, they grow a moustache and work to raise money through their personal sites. Not only are they raising funds to support research, but each man is a walking billboard to raise awareness and start discussions on the importance of men’s health issues.Brandon Sutter
is leading the charge with our Carolina Hurricanes Movember team. We are encouraging our fans to donate to one or all of our players by visiting their personal pages:
We hope that you will consider supporting these players as they work to “change the face of men’s health."
