NAHL announces winners of Movember campaign

Press Release

The North American Hockey League (NAHL) Movember campaign for 2013 has come to an end. It was a fun month of league-wide participation from all the NAHL clubs and it was all about bringing back the mustache, having fun and doing it for a serious cause; men's health, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.  

For the second straight season, the NAHL and its member clubs were a part of Movember involving all 24 teams and the over 550+ players in the league. The players in the NAHL started November 1st clean-shaven and for the rest of the month, these players grew their facial hair to support the Movember campaign.  The mustaches that were grown were a sight to behold.
It was a legendary month for the mo’s (players), and the NAHL is pleased to announce the winners of the NAHL’s Movember campaign.

In the team category, it was a two horse race at the end as the Wichita Falls Wildcats and the Johnstown Tomahawks were in a race to the finish to see which team could raise the most funds.  

Congratulations go to the Wichita Falls Wildcats for raising the most funds and winning the NAHL’s Movember campaign.  The Wildcats raised a total of $3,048 dollars.


In the individual player category, Johnstown Tomahawks forward Josh Bowes raised the most funds of any NAHL player with a total of $720 dollars.  Second was Wichita Falls goalie Chase Munroe, who raised $687 dollars.  In a special mention, two fans from the Tomahawks (Taylor and Kaitlyn) were able to raise an amazing $932 dollars.

For raising the most funds, the Wichita Falls Wildcats will receive a team prize package from Gongshow Gear. Thank you to all who supported the NAHL’s Movember campaign.  Here is wishing good luck to all the freshly shaven and clean faces of the NAHL players in December!
