Men around the world are participating in “Mo-vember” and Lethbridge Hurricanes GM and Head Coach Rich Preston is also joining the cause.
Every year on the 1st of November, men from across Canada and around the world start with a clean-shaven face and for the rest of the month, they groom, trim and wax their way into the ‘stache of their choice raising funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer.
Preston who played professionally in the WHA and NHL was known for his neatly manicured moustache, so this is nothing new. Preston is challenging all Lethbridge fans, corporations and supporters to book their annual health check and contribute any way they can to this fundraising initiative. Preston says “the Hurricanes organization contributes economically, culturally and socially: we can leverage our place in the community to raise awareness and funds. Fans, season ticket holders, shareholders and sponsors can all benefit from annual health checks.”
Last year, more than $19 million was raised across Canada for Movember. To help Head Coach Rich Preston click on the following link http://ca.movember.com/mospace/ then click donate and type in Preston’s name to get to his donation page.
