It’s almost November, which means it’s time for fall, leaves, turkey and… moustaches? During the month of November, the CWU Wellness Center will be hosting various events in support of the Movember Foundation’s mission to bring awareness to and encourage dialogue about men’s health issues. All Movember events are free, open to the public and everyone is encouraged to attend.
To kick off the festivities, the Wellness Center will host a “Shave the Date” party Monday, Nov. 2 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) Pit, where men are invited to get a free shave courtesy of CW Barbershop to start a fresh moustache for the month of Movember. Participants are then encouraged to grow the longest and most unique moustache possible throughout the month.
Movember will continue with the tabling event “Seeking Help Shows Strength” Monday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the SURC tabling area, which will offer information and a discussion about men’s health issues. Monday, Nov. 16 brings “Man Cave Monday,” where attendees will enjoy a game of “Poker with Prizes” and will go head-to-head on the X-box video game “Madden 15” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in SURC 137 A/B.
The month’s events will conclude on Monday, Nov. 30 with “Movember – The Game Show” from 12 to 2 p.m. in the SURC Theatre where participants will mingle and show off the final results of their month-long moustache growing efforts. Contestants for this fun event will be selected at random from audience members and will compete onstage for prizes and bragging rights.
The Wellness Center is hosting these events to raise awareness of men’s health issues and to encourage all men to be proactive about their own health. Show your support for the cause; grow your “Mo” for Movember!
