Today is November 1st, and you know what that means: Movember! So grow those mustaches proudly to represent your alliance with the fight against Men’s Cancer. Remember, you don’t have to be a guy or even a member of the hockey community to observe Movember, women can have fun with it, too. Movember is a month for everybody to honor those affected by cancer. Although growing moustaches for a month is silly, we must recognize the reality behind the month we are commemorating. While fun, it is still all about a way to raise money for an important cause.
