Much like we remove the blades from our racing mowers, this MOWvember we'll remove the blades from our razors to support men's health,” said Bruce Kaufman, “Mr. Mow It All” USLMRA President.
Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) November 01, 2011
In support of the international Movember movement to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) http://www.letsmow.com with the support of its 20-year Title Sponsor STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer http://www.goldeagle.com/brands/stabil/default.aspx has announced its own “MOWvember” campaign to promote men’s health with a MOWvember Fundraising Team and Mustache Contest.
“Much like we remove the blades from our racing mowers, this November we’ll remove the blades from our razors to raise awareness and money for men’s health,” said Bruce Kaufman, “Mr. Mow It All” USLMRA President. “Some call it Movember, but we say… Welcome to MOWvember!"
"We hope folks will join our team and get MOWtivated and join our team," Kaufman added. "But the winner of 'best ‘stache' contest will not be selected on how much money he raises, but by the popular vote of the lawn mower racing community at LetsMow.com and on Facebook!”
During MOWvember, the USLMRA will encourage people to raise funds via an Official USLMRA Movember.com Team at http://us.movember.com/mospace/1357016/ run by "Mr. MowItAll."
Between now and the end of the Sam Rodgers U.S. All American Open race in Alabama – November 7th - guys register with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as "Mo Bros" must groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery, supported by the women in their lives, "Mo Sistas." MOWvember participants and the women in their lives raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts and growing a mustache effectively making lawn mower racers walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of MOWvember.
Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often-ignored issue of men’s health. At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the Gala Partés held around the world for Movember.
At the end of the month, MOWvember Mustache Contest participants will submit final photos of their kick grass mustache and a week-long voting period will be opened to the lawn mower racing community. Voting will take place on Facebook and LetsMow.com, and at the end of the week, the winner of the MOWvember Mustache Contest will be notified. The winner will be announced the first week of December. Photos will be posted on the USLMRA Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/uslmra and on the Cutting Edge Blog at http://www.letsmow.com.
Prizes for the Best Mustaches include:
- A goody box from STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer and Gold Eagle Co.
- A set of EZ Lift (Rhino) Ramps.
- Garden Gnomes from Gnome Frenzy.
- A cool racing shirt from CoolRidesOnLine.
