November promises to be a hairy month at Holland College. More than 110 staff and students in centres across Prince Edward Island have pledged not to shave their upper lips until the end of the month as part of the Movember campaign to raise awareness about prostate cancer.

Some of the college’s participants even shaved off their existing moustaches in order to grow fresh ones for the campaign.

“One of our staff members shaved off a moustache that he’s had for more than 17 years,” said Greg Gairns, a student services and athletics officer at the college, and organizer of the Holland College Movember group.

“Movember gives men an opportunity to discuss health issues, but it’s also a lot of fun.”
It’s not just for men, though. Women can show their support by joining the team, making donations, and by not laughing at the guys, no matter how creepy their moustaches may turn out to be! We’ll check back with members of the Holland College Mo Bros in a couple of weeks to see how they’re doing.

Donate money to the Holland College Mo Bros at http://ca.movember.com/. Join the team at www.movember.com/ca/register/details/team_id/353330.
