The Jacksonville Jaguars have teamed up with the Movember Foundation to help promote awareness for men’s health issues during the month of November.
The Jaguars offensive linemen have become “Mo Bros” and are currently growing or grooming moustaches in support of the campaign and are encouraging fans to donate to Movember online by visiting the Jaguars O-Line Movember page at http://mobro.co/JaguarsOLine.
In addition, the offensive linemen have recorded a series of public service announcements and radio spots which will be shared during Jaguars home games in November, on the jaguars.com website, on Jaguars radio and through Jaguars social media.
The Jaguars will be promoting Movember during their November 25th game against the Tennessee Titans at Everbank Field. A special Jaguars Movember t-shirt will also be on sale at stadium merchandise outlets for $10, with $5 going to the Movember campaign for every t-shirt sold.
A group of oncology and urology specialists, led by Jaguars suite owner Dr. Shyam Paryani and Dr. Ali Kasraeian, will be attending the Jaguars game against the Titans to offer free advice and information on men’s health issues. They will be handing out the NFL’s “Playbook on Men’s Health” in the Fan Entertainment Zone to fans attending the game. Dr. Kasraeian will also be featured on the Jaguars pregame radio show.
Since its beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 million “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas” to participate with formal campaigns throughout the world. “Mo” is Australian for moustache, and by growing Mo's, men raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Once registered at www.movember.com, men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
