The North Iowa Bulls and the NA3HL are supporting the annual "Movember" cause for men's health and awareness! The Bulls will host a "Movember" weekend vs the Alexandria Blizzard in Mason City this Friday and Saturday, November 7th and 8th. The puck drops at 7:30pm both nights but any fans in attendance who are sporting mustaches (fake or real) will get $2 off their ticket in support of "Movember!"
Come on out and help us rock the barn this weekend and also support a great cause in "Movember!" The league is also hosting a charity fundraising event throughout the entire month and you can find details on that below.
From the NA3HL website:
The start of moustache season is here and the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) and the Movember campaign is in full swing!
This year, the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) has announced that for the third consecutive season, it will be a part of Movember with their own campaign involving all 31 teams and the over 700+ players in the league. The NA3HL Movember campaign is all about bringing back the moustache, having fun and doing it for a serious cause; men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Last season, the Granite City Lumberjacks raised the most funds of any NA3HL team.
Here is how it works… as the official rules of Movember state, all Mo Bros (NA3HL players), once registered, must begin clean-shaven on the 1st of Movember and grow just a moustache (no beards, no goatees) for the 30 days of November. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Also supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, the NA3HL and their Movember Mo Bros raise funds for awareness for their Mo-growing efforts. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November.
By joining one of the NA3HL teams, fans will automatically be a part of the their team’s NA3HL Network page which is a great way to connect with the other teams and individuals and keep up to date with the other Movember Moustache merchants. Fans are also encouraged to tweet pictures of their Mo's (mustaches) to @NA3HL
Participation is really simple – men and women register at Movember to grow or support the Mo. Once registered, Movember participants recruit friends, family and colleagues to donate to their Mo- growing efforts. In 2013, the U.S. campaign saw over 219,000 men and women raising more than $20 million for the 577 programs that Movember funds. Donations to your favorite team will accumulate under each teams account. The team with the most funds raised will win a team prize package from Gongshow Gear. Although Mo Bros don’t begin to grow until Movember 1st, October is the most important time for Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to register. To follow/donate to your favorite team, click their link below:
