Tonight I turned on Sunday Night Football as background noise as I worked a bit, and there it was. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers with a mustache. Considering that I have a scratchy bit of facial hair above my lip, the thought hit me. Could it be? Could Rodgers, too, be a “Mo Bro”? And sure enough, Rodgers is growing his mustache, as I am, in support of Movember.
November – or Movember – is the month when some men spend 30 days growing a mustache to become walking reminders of the importance of combating men’s health issues such as testicular and prostate cancer.
Rodgers isn’t the only professional athlete to join the worldwide cause this year. A few weeks ago, members of the Qantas Wallabies, Australia’s rugby union team, joined Movember and helped unveil a Qantas Airlines Boeing 737-800 that sports a mustache.
A worldwide effort, Movember kicks off its sixth year in the United States in 2012. During Movember, “Mo Bros” have fun perfecting their ‘staches and join their “Mo Sistas” in securing donations for Movember men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
Last year, more than 145,000 Americans raised more than $15 million.
One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime, according to Movember data. Movember has been a fun way for me as a health and fitness blogger to begin discussion about lifestyle choices like better nutrition and fitness in preventing testicular and prostate cancer.
