Show us your ‘stache!

Each year in November a month-long fundraising campaign known as “Movember” kicks off to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer. Beginning on Nomember 1st, men around the world adopt the title of “Mo Bros” and for 30 days, they grow epic mustaches to support the cause. Women, a.k.a. Mo Sistas, get in on the fun as well, spreading the word and convincing their guys to get in on the action. This year, Canadian Mo Bros and Mo Sistas have raised more than $19 million for Prostate Cancer Canada.


We love a good cause-and a good mustache-here at Best Health, so we asked our readers to send in their best ‘stache photos for the chance to win a one-year subscription to Best Health, plus a prize from Schick Hydro. Here are some of the best cookie dusters that came our way.

Says Mo Sista, Courtney Arsenault: “We wanted to join in on the Movember fun, but since we’re girls and couldn’t grow our own mustaches, we got them tattooed instead-and boy did it hurt!”


Now that’s some serious Movember commitment.
