Lawn Mower Racers Join International Movember Movement And Grow Kick Grass ‘Staches to Battle Prostate Cancer

Leaf Reaper

“The Leaf Reaper is designed to easily collect and funnel leaves into waste bags and no more recycling cheap plastic tarps," said Steve Bunten of Leaf & Lawn Reaper.

In support of the international Movember movement to raise funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the Leaf & Lawn Reaper http://www.leafreaper.com will join the STA-BIL Lawn and Garden Mower Racing Series http://www.letsmow.com to promote men’s health by supporting the “MOWvember” Moustache Contest.

During November of each year, the Movember charitable movement http://us.movember.com/ is responsible for the sprouting of mustaches on thousands of men’s faces across the US and around the world. With their moustaches, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.

With the support of its 20-year Title Sponsor STA-BIL Fuel Stabilizer http://www.goldeagle.com/brands/stabil/default.aspx the U.S. Lawn Mower Racing Association (USLMRA) announced its own “MOWvember”, and will support this international effort with an Official USLMRA Movember.com Fundraising Team https://www.movember.com/us/donate/your-details/team_id/211674 and a USLMRA MOWvember Moustache Contest!

The winner of the STA-BIL Kick Grass ‘Stache Contest will receive a Leaf & Lawn Reaper, the patented reusable lawn leaf tarp which will last a lifetime.

“Much like we remove the blades from our racing mowers, this November we’re removing 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.”

“The cost of replacing cheap tarps which tear and blow around can mount up when you constantly have to pick up leaves in your lawn,” said Steve Bunten of Leaf & Lawn Reaper. “The Leaf Reaper is designed to easily collect and funnel leaves into waste bags. The Leaf Reaper cleans up like magic, just hose it off and it easily stores on a shelf or in the corner of your garage. No more recycling cheap plastic tarps. The Leaf Reaper is made from rip stop nylon and has been created with durability in mind. We’re proud to support the Movember campaign with providing a Leaf Reaper to the winning ‘Mow Bro’!”

On Movember 1st, guys registered at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. 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 by Movember, for Movember.”

During MOWvember, the USLMRA will encourage people to raise funds via a USLMRA MOWvember Team at http://us.movember.com/mospace/1357016/ and will also present its own Mustache Contest for the lawn mower racing community.

“We hope folks will join our team and get MOWTIVATED,” added Mr. Mow It All. “But the winner of "best 'stache" contest will not be selected on how much money he raises, but by a vote on the USLMRA Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/uslmra. Bring it on – the MOW the merrier!”
