“Movember (a portmanteau from the Australian-English diminutive word for “moustache”, “mo”, and “November”) is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.”
Basically, it means that guys don’t have to shave for a month, so long as they raise money for a men’s health charity! YAY!
So… Your friendly neighborhood running shoe store has decided to have a fund-raiser! Scott, Ron, Nate and Barry will be doing their darndest to out-do each other and grow out some epic ZZ Top-esque facial hair. It is going to be GLORIOUS!
Here is where you come in. You get to vote on who wins! “How do I vote?” you ask. Well, let me tell you. WITH DOLLAR, DOLLAR BILLS YA’LL! Throughout the month, we will be posting pictures both here, and on our Facebook page. You will be able to vote for the winner by either dropping a dollar or two off at the store as a vote for your favorite beard/mustache, or you can click on the Paypal buttons below to donate on line! Absolutely all of the money will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
So here you go! Vote early and vote often!
Scott is the early favorite. He is a wild man who just finished his first 100K, so you know his testosterone has got to be through the roof!
Ron is sooooooo confident that he is going to win, that he gave the rest of us a week head start. That’s right… He didn’t shave until the start of the second week! Bravado or pure craziness, you will have to be the judge!
Nate is follicly challenged, and has no chance of winning… Unless you give him lots of pity votes!
Barry is the dark horse in this competition… He is usually a bit on the scruffy side, but no one has ever seen him with a full on beard before. What will happen? Who cares! Vote for Barry because he’s the one that came up with this crazy idea! (Editor’s note… Barry is also the one that wrote this page…) (Additional Editor’s Note… Barry is also the editor.) (Third Editor’s note… Apparently Barry likes to talk about himself in the 3rd person and loves ellipses…)
