The start of moustache season is here and the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) and the Movember campaign is in full swing!
This year, the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) has announced that for the third consecutive season, it will be a part of Movember with their own campaign involving all 31 teams and the over 700+ players in the league. The NA3HL Movember campaign is all about bringing back the moustache, having fun and doing it for a serious cause; men’s health, specifically prostrate and testicular cancer initiatives. Last season, the Granite City Lumberjacks raised the most funds of any NA3HL team.
Here is how it works….as the official rules of Movember state, all Mo Bros (NA3HL players), once registered, must begin clean-shaven on the 1st of November and grow just a moustache (no beards or 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 NA3HL and the 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 NA3HL teams, fans will automatically be a part of their team’s NA3HL Network page which is a great way to connect with other teams and individuals and keep up-to-date with the other Movember moustache merchants. Fans are also encouraged to tweet their pictures of their Mo’s (mustaches) to @NA3HL.
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 United States 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 November 1st. October is the most important time for the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to register.
