Tis that time of year once again when men around the world are encouraged to grow, and women encouraged to support, the growing of majestic, illustrious, eye-brow raising mustaches, all in the name of charity!
Beginning on November 1st, MLS W.O.R.K.S. will kick off Soccer Kicks Cancer’s Movember 2012 campaign. We're looking for a few good men and women to join Dax McCarty and Heath Pearce as part of the Red Bulls Movember team!
So what is Movember? Glad you asked. Movember is the annual mustache-growing campaign that takes place during the month of November that allows for the added research and fundraising for male cancer, particularly prostate and testicular cancer. The global men's health charity encourages men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of November.
