BORO FANS ENCOURAGED TO GROW A MOUSTACHE FOR MOVEMBER

19 October 2014

Stevenage fans are being encouraged to grow a moustache for men’s health as part of Movember.

We’re inviting Boro fans to sign up to the official Club page at Movember.com. On this page, select the ‘Join This Team’ option and fill in your details to become part of the Stevenage Movember team.

Your friends and family can then either donate specifically to you, or to the Stevenage team as a whole.

At the end of the month, we’d love to see your Boro Mos, and we’ll get the first team players to choose their favourite.

Moustaches and Movember
Locally grown moustaches were once a common occurrence on football pitches all over the UK. A team without a moustachioed talisman was a rarity and most were born and bred in their hometown and fresh from the terraces themselves. Movember aims to celebrate those golden times and to once again see real men with real moustaches grace the pitches of the UK. 

Players and supporters can still be heroes on and off the pitch through the power of their upper lips and locally grown moustaches. Man made and changing the face of men’s health.

Movember has raised £345m for men’s health over the last ten years and has been responsible for over 800 initiatives concerned with prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health in twenty-one countries.  

In the UK, through collaboration with our health partners Prostate Cancer UK and the Institute of Cancer Research, coupled with direct funding from the Movember foundation, Movember are committed to accelerating outcomes in key areas of men’s health and this year, for the first time, are raising funds for men’s mental health problems.

Support your local moustaches this Movember. Sign up at movember.com.

The Rules of Movember
1. Once registered at Movember.com each Mo Bro must begin the 1st November with a clean shaven face
