October 16, 2013 (ISN) – It’s that time of year again when men around the world raise money by simply not shaving their upper lip! Once again this year, CARHA Hockey is joining the Movember cause by contiuning to raise money for men’s health initiatives by offering you some great prizes- you don’t need to be a CARHA Hockey member to enter and win!
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.
As part of CARHA Hockey’s continued mission to provide health and fitness awareness and encourage a safe playing environment for our members, we are once again running our Annual CARHA Mo’ckey Movember Challenge. At the start of the 2012 campaign we set a goal of around $1,000 raised. Half way through the month we were up over $2,000 and realized we needed to up our goal to $5,000. The response we received in our first annual campaign was overwhelming! In total we had 35 team members and we raised a grand total of $5,754 for men’s health initiatives. We are encouraging everyone to join the challenge to raise money for men’s health initiatives. CARHA Hockey has gathered some great prizes to award to different category winners! Entrants do NOT need to be CARHA Hockey members to enter this contest – so tell your friends and family to sign up! Our goal this year is to raise $10,000 for the Movember campaign!
