It appears that Movember is upon us, and the Beer Barons will be participating this year. Movember, the month formerly known as November, is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health.
Men’s health is a cause that we care about. Our commitment is to grow a moustache for the month of November and by changing our appearance, raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
To highlight the importance of what we are doing, take a look at these statistics:
- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
- This year 242,000 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
- This year 8,290 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer
If anyone would like to help support our efforts, there are several ways you can help. Join Movember and become a fellow Moustache Merchant. You can grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to show your support and help recruit other Mo growers to the team. If you join Movember, you're welcome to join the "Indiana Beer Barons" Movember team, the more the merrier. You can also support our efforts by making a donation to support our moustache growing efforts.
