Mustaches have come full circle. The iconic facial hair statement
was relatively absent in the 90's and 2000's.
mustaches are making a healthy come back, especially in Novmeber; or
should I say "Movember."
On November 26th, during
the Wild's game against Nashville, we are attempting to set a Guinness
World Record for the most real mustaches in one place.
idea originated from Wild defense man Nick Schultz's determination to
help a family friend who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2009.
receiving the bad news about his friend, Schultz was turned on to
"Movember," a non-profit organization that promotes men's health,
particularly in November. The organization, started in 2004 by four
Aussies at a bar, requires it's supporters to grow mustaches during
November. It serves as the ultimate conversation starter to talk about
mens health. Since "Movember" started, the organization has raised over
100 million dollars for cancer research.
November 1, 2009 Schultz started growing his mustache on November 1st.
Next thing he knew, his Wild teammates were growing mustaches as well to
support Schultz and mens health.
who grow mustaches will be apart of the World Record, promote men's
health, and get to come on the ice following the game to take a group
picture with members of the Wild.
I started growing my mustache recently. Its hard to say right now how good or bad the 'stache will be, but I'm leery. Truthfully, we need you, the fan, the grow your mustache. Not only will it help us break a world record, but its for a fantastic cause.
By the way, is it mustache or moustache?
I'm David Watkins, and I'll try harder next time.
