In honor of the global prostate and testicular cancer awareness movement known as Movember, some of your favorite Nashville Predators will be sporting a little extra facial hair. Players such as captain Shea Weber, Pekka Rinne, Mike Fisher and Eric Nystrom pledged not to shave their moustaches for the entire month of November. The players who participate will become a part of a global effort to use moustaches to bring attention to prostate cancer awareness. New moustaches generate questions, which help educate the community and promote the cause. In 2011, Preds players and fans raised $8,000 to be donated to prostate and testicular cancer research.
This Movember, the Nashville Predators challenge you to join us as we turn Smashville into Stacheville and work to change the face of men’s health.

You can also get involved with social media by following @PredsNHL and tweeting us pictures of your Mo and posting them to the Nashville Predators Facebook page.
The idea for Movember was sparked in 2003 over a few beers in Melbourne, Australia. The plan was simple – to bring the moustache back as a bit of a joke to do something for men’s health. No money was raised in 2003, but the guys behind the Mo realized the potential a moustache had in generating conversations about men’s health. Inspired by the women around them who helped raise awareness about breast cancer, the Mo Bros set themselves on a course to create a global men’s health movement.
In 2003, the campaign evolved and focused on raising awareness and funds for the number one cancer affecting men – prostate cancer. 432 Mo Bros joined the movement that year, raising $55,000 for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia – representing the single largest donation they had ever received.
The Movember moustache has continued to grow year after year, expanding to the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, Spain, South Africa, the Netherlands and Finland.
In 2012, global participation of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas climbed to 1.1 million raising $147.0 million USD for Movember’s global beneficiary partners.
