Join The Nashville Predators For Movember 2012

What Is Movember?

The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia. The guys behind it joked about 80s fashion and decided it was time to bring the moustache back. In order to justify their Mos (Australian slang for moustache), they used their new looks to raise money for prostate cancer research… never dreaming that facial hair would ultimately lead to a global movement that would get men talking about a taboo subject – their health.

How Do I Participate?

A Mo Bro starts Movember – the month formerly known as November – clean shaven, and grows a moustache all month long, garnering support from friends and family in the form of donations. What’s more, a Mo Bro is a walking billboard for the cause as his new look opens the door for him to talk about cancers affecting men – making the moustache a symbol, much like the pink ribbon is for breast cancer.

While growing a Mo is left to the guys, Mo Sistas (women who support their guys) form an important part of Movember by recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds.

This Movember, the money raised in the U.S. will be split between the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LiveStrong Foundation. All proceeds in Stacheville – the city formerly known as Smashville – will benefit Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation will use the money raised by Movember to fund research to find better treatments and a cure for prostate cancer. To date, Movember has raised $47 million globally making it the world’s largest charity event for men. Significantly, awareness of men’s health issues has improved with Movember helping to spread important health messages directly to millions of Mo Bros & Sistas around the world.

This year’s campaign theme is “Movember & Sons”. At the heart of this campaign is the transfer of knowledge that happens between father/son, mentor/mentee, and coach/player. The inspiration for the campaign was a poem by Rudyard Kipling, titled “If” that tells the story of what it takes to be a man. Movember has put together an incredibly inspiring video for the poem- Movember & Sons – “If” Video.

The Nashville Predators challenge you to join us in changing the face of men's health. For more information, please visit us.movember.com and check Stacheville for picture updates, the official rules, donation opportunities and Movember contests.
