Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache-growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health.
This year, 16 Oilers players will be participating in the event. Check back regularly for updates on how your favourite Oilers are doing.
Since 2009 the Oilers organization has raised over $35,000 in support of Movember and Prostate Cancer Canada. The money raised in Canada goes directly to Prostate Cancer Canada who will use the funds for the development of programs related to awareness, public education, advocacy, support of those affected, and research into the prevention, detection, treatment and cure of prostate cancer in Northern Alberta. This year, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation is proud to support both Movember and Grovember, a local initiative that will power progress in leading-edge prostate cancer research right here in Alberta. Grovember supports the Alberta Cancer Foundation and the world class research being done here in our province. Every dollar raised from Grovember will be put to work right here at home!

In 2012, over 1.1 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world joined the movement, raising CAD $146.6 million.
