Cayman Islands 2015
Ah, the month of Movember, when men can proudly grow a moustache, all in the name of creating awareness and raising money for men’s health. All proceeds raised from Movember Cayman are donated to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and other local charities in support of men’s physical and mental health awareness.
Movember ends in …
What is MOvember?
Movember (the month formerly known as November) is an annual charity event held during November with the aim of creating awareness and raising money for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Guys in the Cayman Islands pay a registration fee, which gets them a specially designed (and much sought after) MO T-shirt, and the opportunity to compete for the coveted prize of CAY-MAN of MOVEMBER. On the 1st of Movember, contestants start clean-shaven, and have the month to grow their MO.
To raise money for the cause they approach family, friends and co-workers who pledge to sponsor them some cash for growing their ‘tache. MO Sistas can also show their support by buying a T-shirt.
At the end of the month we have the MOsquerade ball, where contestants come dressed up to compliment their MO and compete to win prizes in different categories. After a ‘tash-tastic month of growing its great to celebrate with our fellow MO Bros and friends. MO Bros bring all the money they have raised for the month, for collection and counting on the night.
