The Oklahoma City Barons players and staff are joining Integris Men’s Health University in shaving their upper lips today in preparation for MOVEMBER. They will attempt to grow mustaches to celebrate MOVEMBER and raise awareness for issues facing men’s health.
Now in its ninth year, MOVEMBER started in Melbourne, Australia, where “Mo” is Aussie slang for moustache. In MOVEMBER men on sports teams and in other groups grow moustaches (or mustaches, if you prefer) to raise money and awareness for men’s health issues.
The Barons will show off the mustaches of the players and staff who participate in weekly updates on Barons Beat, the Barons website and Facebook page. You too can show off your mustache by uploading pictures to the Barons Facebook page at facebook.com/okcbarons. Fans interested in donating to the Barons MOVEMBER movement can visit mobro.co/okcbarons.
Each Barons home game in the month of MOVEMBER features a ‘Mo Station’ to allow fans to create their own mustache at the rink. Any fan who has real or fake mustache is eligible for the Best Mustache contest at each home game in the month of November.
During the month of MOVEMBER, fans can earn a $4 discount on a single-game ticket by showing their mustache at the Cox Convention Center box office on the day of the game. Women can also take advantage of this offer by wearing a fake mustache to the box office.
