BUILDING A MUSTACHE IN #MOVEMBERFORBD
By Josh Evans, OKC Barons
Join the Oklahoma City Barons players and staff and INTEGRIS Health and grow a mustache in the month of November to celebrate MOVEMBER and raise awareness for issues facing men’s health.
Now in its ninth year, MOVEMBER started in Melbourne, Australia, where “Mo” is Aussie slang for moustache. In MOVEMBER men on sports teams and in other groups grow moustaches (or mustaches, if you prefer) to raise money and awareness for men’s health issues.
Even more poingnant for the Barons was the news that rookie defenseman Brandon Davidson has been diagnosed with testicualr cancer. Barons teammates, front office and fans are joining together to raise awareness and funds during this month. Barons fans are encouraged to use the hashtag #MovemberforBD when discussing their mustaches this month.

The Barons will show off the mustaches of the players and staff who participate in updates on Barons Beat, the Barons website and Facebook page. You too can show off your mustache by uploading pictures to the Barons Facebook page at facebook.com/okcbarons.
Each Barons home game in the month of Movember features a 'Mo Station to allow fans to create their own mustache right at the rink. Any fan who has real or fake mustache is eligible for the Best Mustache contest at each home game in the month of November.
During the month of MOVEMBER, fans can earn a $4 discount on a single-game ticket by showing their mustache at the Cox Convention Center box office on the day of the game only. Women can also take advantage of this offer by wearing a fake mustache to the box office.
The Barons look forward to sporting facial hair and raising awareness for men’s health issues. Are you ready? Building a mustache in MOVEMBER.
