IVCC’s Psychology Club is participating in Movember this month. Movember is a men’s health awareness and fundraising tactic that gets the word out about prostate and testicular cancer.

Men who participate, called “Mo Bros”, dedicate themselves to growing a moustache over the thirty days of Movember. By doing so they become a walking billboard for the cause.

According to the Web site,  the moustache is their cause’s ribbon.  Women who would like to get involved, called “Mo Sistas”, can do so by encouraging the men in their lives and by helping raise funds.

Participation is not just shaving the face and growing the moustache. People can help out by donating to a person who is participating, attending various events or hosting an event themselves.

All funds raised are given to programs researching men’s health, including the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG Foundation.

For information or to set up a donation, visit movember.com or the Psychology Club Facebook page or contact psychology instructor Betsy Klopcic at betsy_klopcic@ivcc.edu.
