THE MO GROWS ACROSS THE GLOBE

Growing a mustache for Movember is about more than changing your shaving routine for a month. For that month that mustache, glorious or paltry as it might be, allows you to start conversations. Those conversations raise awareness and educate those that participate in them. That awareness and education can help save lives.

We here at Movember Indy are part of a world-wide effort. To help reinforce the scope of the global Movember movement, take a moment to peruse this coverage the Movember Foundation has put together, showcasing the Movember “Mo”s that have sprung up around the world!

YOUR FAVORITE FILMS: NOW WITH MORE MUSTACHE!

During the month of Movember, we come across a lot of mustache related content, from all over.  I mean all over. Some times it’s new.  Some times it’s a couple years old.  Some times we see good content.  Some times we see great content.

Then, other times, we find something that doesn’t matter how old it is.  We find something that doesn’t need much introduction.*

So without further ado; we proudly present the latest treasure found in our endless research of the hirsute interwebs:

* – That might be partly because of its intrinsic greatness, but also partly because it… would be really hard to contextualize this with an introduction.

NEW EVENT: MO ZONE @ SKY ZONE TRAMPOLINE PARK

It’s a commonly known fact that every boy grows up dreaming of being able to do two things.

  1. Grow an Amazing Mustache.
  2. Fly

On Movember 19th, you – finally – can do both! (Girls can, too!)

The kind folks at Sky Zone Trampoline Park of Plainfield have organized a wonderful event called MO ZONE. Any mustache’d mo-siblings (either wearing a real mo, or a fake one) get a discount at the door! A remarkable 33% discount will give you 1 hour for $10! PLUS, a portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Movember cause! Take your mo to new heights while dunking on Sky Slam! Or play Ultimate Dodgeball on the All-Walled Trampoline courts!

MOVEMBER IN THE NEWS

Movember Indy Local Committee Members Bryan, Mike, and George recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Jessica Key of the Indianapolis Recorder to chat Movember, men’s health, and mustaches.  Jessica took a genuine interest in the movement and wrote a great summary of the cause and its goals!

Movember’s goal is to get men to grow moustaches and the community to support them by creating an innovative, fun and engaging annual Movember campaign. [Chief-of-Stache, Bryan Kendall] said the mustache simply serves as a support symbol; an icebreaker giving men the opportunity to share information about health concerns like prostate cancer; and raises awareness of the Movember Foundation.
