Vancouver Whitecaps FC are pleased to support Movember, a month-long charity event to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer research.
Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a charity event held during November each year to raise money and awareness for the Prostate Cancer Research Centre of Canada.
At the start of Movember, guys begin with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom a moustache. Part fundraising initiative, part PR campaign, Movember was a huge success in Vancouver last year and looks to gain even more ‘tuft’ this year.
Did you know that every year around 24,700 Canadian men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and about 4,300 die of the disease, making it the number one cancer threat to Canadian men? Unlike women, men typically are reluctant to see a doctor or go for regular medical checkups. The aim of Movember is to change this attitude. Make men’s health fun by putting the moustache back on the face of Canadian men and raising some serious funds for prostate cancer.
