It’s that time of year again, where the Anaheim Ducks players take on the task of growing mustaches for the month of November to help to raise awareness and funds for Movember, the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
We are calling all fans to join the Anaheim Ducks in participating in the month-long Movember campaign. To join the Anaheim Ducks Movember team, please visit anaheimducks.com/movember and help to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs.
