Crimson Hawks Kick Off “Movember” at Basketball Game on November 19

Posted on 11/17/2014 2:52:35 PM

The IUP Crimson Hawks men’s basketball team would like everyone to join them on Wednesday night, November 19, at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex (KCAC) to kick off Movember at their game against WV Wesleyan at 7:30 p.m. 

IUP’s IFC Council is sponsoring a Pack the House for Movember, a global moustache growing campaign that raises money for men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. The month-long campaign began on November 3 with the annual “Shave-Off.” Members of our fraternities shaved clean and have been growing their ‘staches since then, gaining the title “Mo Bros.” At the end of the month, MoBros and their MoSistas celebrate the success of Movember by attending a gala party, where the men compete in a Mo pageant.

Since its beginning in 2003, Movember has raised over $174 million for efforts against men’s cancers.  Last year, the Interfraternity Council raised over $2,000 for the Movember campaign. They hope to raise even more this year, so please come out not only to support the Crimson Hawks, but also to support their efforts. There will be opportunities to donate at the game by purchasing various items. There will also be a halftime contest for representatives from each participating fraternity and sorority that includes a grand prize for the winner. 

The women’s team kicks off their season with a home opener on Tuesday night, November 18, at 7:00 p.m. against Ohio Valley at the KCAC. Fans are asked to come out to support the Crimson Hawks in what is sure to be an exciting first game of the season!
