With the month of October about to skate out, November will skate in with the start of Movember on Friday. Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches, with the purpose of raising awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancer and associated charities. Similar to years past, players throughout the NHL will participate in the month-long event, ten Boston Bruins specifically.
BOSTON, MA – The Boston Bruins announced today, October 30, that Matt Bartkowski, Patrice Bergeron, Gregory Campbell, Dougie Hamilton, Chris Kelly, David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Brad Marchand, Daniel Paille, and Shawn Thornton will participate in the Movember movement by growing and maintaining moustaches during the month of November in order to raise funds and awareness for men’s health.
To kick off their month-long participation in Movember the players will get a clean shave, provided by Gillette, on Thursday, October 31 at TD Garden after their game against the Anaheim Ducks. Gillette will donate $1,000 to each of the player’s Movember pages to jumpstart their fundraising. Fans can get involved by donating to their favorite player’s Movember page or by starting their own at bostonbruins.com/movember. Bruins prizes will be awarded weekly to the fan with the best Mo.
