Movember Mustaches Growing in Chillicothe

Moustache season is here! The Movember Foundation enters its 11th year as the leading global organization to change the face of men's health. It's time for Chillicothe to join the Mo Bro movement. Hedrick Medical Center and Sensenich Jeweler are challenging area men to start clean-shaven on November 1. For the entire month of November, men participating in the fund-raiser will then grow a cancer-fighting mustache. The growth of a moustache sparks conversations, which will turn into opportunities to spread awareness and raise vital funds for men's health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. The money raised will be donated to the Movember Foundation and the Hedrick Medical Center Foundation.

A Shave the Date event will get things kicked-off on Thursday, October 30, from 5-6:30 p.m. at Hedrick Medical Center. Local barber Claude Bevelle, owner of The Clipper, will be onsite to professionally shave down all men who show up for the event. There will also be shave stations for those men who would rather shave themselves. Attending the event is not a requirement to participate in the Movember mustache movement. Men are welcome to participate by shaving in the comfort of their own home.

The fundraiser will end on Monday, December 1. Participants are invited and encouraged to attend the Mo Bro Party at Green Hills Golf Course from noon-1 p.m. where prizes will be awarded, final donations will be submitted, and a lunch will be served. Categories to be judged include:

  • Most money raised
  • Best locally grown style
  • Most growth
  • The little follicles that couldn't (least growth)
  • Most fitting
  • Most disturbing

Men participating in the Movember mustache growing fundraiser and attending the luncheon are asked to pledge a minimum of $20, but any amount above the minimum contribution will be greatly appreciated. For more information, to participate, or pledge please call Eric Sensenich at 660-646-3161 or Jordan Ferguson at 660-214-8405.
