This month is known as “ Movember, “ rather than November in Canada, as thousands of men across the nation will grow moustaches, beards, goatees or whatever facial hair they have to support men’s health.
“Movember “has been a leading fundraiser around the world and has raised money for campaigns to increase awareness about men’s health, mainly focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Twenty-five teams in the NHL helped in last year’s campaign. The Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens and Carolina Hurricanes were the top three fundraising hockey clubs.
The Movember Foundation is looking to inspire happier, healthier and longer lives and it has raised more than $650 million in funding for more than 1,000 major men’s health programs in 21 countries.
