Movember participants sought for fundraiser

Mo bros can get their mojo going for Movember.

Mo bros can get their mojo going for Movember.

Central Alberta men can participate in the month-long annual fundraiser for men’s health issues by growing moustaches and other facial hair.

The November event to raise awareness of prostate cancer and funds to fight it began in Australia in 2004 and has spread to about 20 other countries, raising nearly $42 million in Canada last year and more than $120 million globally so far. It has grown to also fund programs surrounding men’s mental health issues.

Women can get involved through Mo Sistas by raising funds themselves and encouraging men to participate.

Men must begin November clean shaven and not connect their moustaches to any other facial hair.

Steve Snelgrove and his hockey team the Red Deer Pylons have participated for five years. They’re working on plans for a month-end party at Chillabongs Bar and Grill.

“Other people hold their own parties. I’ve heard of them in Sylvan Lake and Blackfalds.”

Information on local events and participants, as well as registration and donation details, are available online at
