SAINT PAUL, Minn. – The National Lacrosse League’s (NLL) Minnesota Swarm players D Jon Sullivan and F Matt Lyons will sport mustaches in November as part of a “Movember” contest to help raise awareness for testicular and prostate cancer.
Movember, a combination of mo (slang for mustache) and November, challenges men to start off November clean-shaven and then grow a mustache during the month.
The idea for Movember was developed by a group of men in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. The men were inspired by all that has been done to raise awareness for breast cancer and wanted to find a way to raise awareness for men’s health.
Fans will have the opportunity to win NLL gear by participating in the contest. The winner will be selected by players from every NLL team. Submit your pictures for the Movember contest on the Bainbridge Sports Management facebook page.
