Men’s Hockey Players Grow Mustaches to Fight Cancer

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Members of the Harvard men’s hockey team are growing mustaches throughout the month of November as part of the Movember campaign to raise money and awareness to fight prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

One in six American men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes. Members of the Crimson are asking fans to support their growing efforts and the 33,000 men who will die of prostate cancer and the nearly 8,300 men who will be diagnosed with testicular cancer this year. All Movember, individuals can join the men’s hockey players in supporting the cause of men’s health by donating to their fundraising team here.

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the United States and around the world. With their “mo’s,” these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.
