The USAFL Grows Mo's for Movember

Andy Vanica Movember

Saturday, October 23, 2010 – The United States Australian Rules Football League is excited to announce their participation in Movember 2010. During the month of November, male players from across the country will grow mustaches to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer. Teams within the USAFL will compete to see which club and individual can raise the most money, and most importantly, who can sport the best Mo’. Fact: In 2010 tragically more than 32,000 men will die as a direct result of prostate cancer.

What can you do about this? Join the USAFL and Movember in raising money and awareness for prostate cancer. Since 2004, men from around the world have been spending November growing a moustache, thus transforming the month into Movember. In 2009 more than 250,000 men registered, over 1 million people donated, and more than $42 million USD was raised. Proceeds are split between the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and LIVESTRONG. Information can be found at “It is only fitting that our Australian Football organization get behind such a great cause which began in Australia.” says Rich Mann, USAFL President. Clubs will fall under the USAFL Movember network, allowing the organization to track top fundraising clubs and individuals throughout the month. Already, the Denver Bulldogs, New York Magpies, Des Moines Roosters, Columbus Jackaroos, Chicago United, and Boston Demons have created teams. Overall, USAFL aims to raise at least $15,000. All money is donated directly to Movember.
