We are a week away from the begining of Movember, which is a moustache growing charity event held each November to help raise funds and awareness about men's health, especially prostate and testicular cancer.

For a visual rundown of the event, check out this video:

I took part in Movember for the first time 3 or 4 years ago and, suffice it to say, I did not end up with an award winning 'stache.  I have never been very "talented" in the facial hair growing category.  Thanks Mom and Dad.  But, my friend Brad is captaining a team this year, so I shall once again set aside the clippers, apply Rogaine to my upper lip (that's healthy, right?), and hope for the best.  

After I get signed up and have my information, I will post a picture of my clean shaven, baby face, and a link to the website if anyone would care to donate.  If the Mo comes in fairly decent, I may even track it's progress with a picture each week (but I wouldn't hold your breath).

The first year I did it, I was an independent MoBro, sans team, and was able to raise about $120 (if my memory is correct).  I hope to demolish that number this year.

UPDATE:  Many thanks to Friar Tuck for linking to me from his page.
If anyone would care to make a Movember donation, here is a link to the donation page.
And for all those adventurous souls who'd like to join in the fun and grow a Mo, here is a link to my team registration page.
