In Movember - the month formerly named "November" - Canadian Outdoor and Paddling Companies have got together to raise awareness and funds for Men's Health. In Support of this global initiative, we'll be growing mustaches and showing them off all month long.

You can help out by showing your support - OH! and you can even win some prizes! Sure, we have fun growing our Soup Strainers, but it's WAY more fun when we hear from you about how we're doing.

To win one of the 4 Mo Paddles Prize Packages, simply vote for your favourite Mo (The Movember term used interchangeably for both a Movember participant and the mustache he grows.) You can vote once a day, and each time will count as an entry for the next draw. Check out our Contestants, peruse their photos and pick your favourite Mo.

What is Movember? Well, During November each year, thousands of supporters in Canada and around the world begin with a clean shaven face and spend the rest of the month sprouting their mustaches, often to the chagrin of their wives and girlfriends, and in spite of what it might do to their love lives. As you can imagine, the results vary with each Mo, from uncontrollably manly to the ... well ... let's just say they try their best. Either way, these men raise vital funds and awareness for Men's Health. For more information on what Movember is exactly, see the "About" page:

Of course Movember is a fun and creative means to raise awareness, but it's also a way to raise vital funds for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. Please consider donating to the cause: Team Mo Paddles Donation Page
