Calgary, AB – The Calgary Hitmen and Calgary Flames together with Canada Safeway Ltd. and Prostate Cancer Canada are excited to continue to support Movember, a month to fight prostate cancer.

Both Hitmen and Flames players and staff will grow moustaches during the month of November to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer.

“Our hockey club is excited to continue to be part of Movember,” comments Hitmen captain Cody Sylvester. “The team recognizes the importance of supporting Prostate Cancer Canada and we encourage all fans to become active participants in this great cause.”

“A lot of the guys on the team grew moustaches last year for Movember,” says Flames forward Mikael Backlund. “We had a ton of fun competing against each other while raising money for a very worth worthy cause in Prostate Cancer Canada.”
