Scary but true: 1 in 8 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.

We know what you're thinking - there has to be something we can do to help. Guess what, there is.

It’s that time of year again when moustaches become commonplace and November is referred to as Movember; it's a shout out to all the Mo's being sprouted on thousands of men’s faces to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health.

If you’ve ever wanted to see what you look like with a little lip carpet, now’s your chance to make a difference.

In Movember, register at Movember.com and join other Vancouver Canucks fans pledging to take their clean-shave faces and gruff them up for 30 days of fine moustachery. Mo Bros raise funds for their whisker efforts, regardless of how magnificent or mini. Mo Sistas also play a part by supporting the men in their lives in their moustache efforts by leaving the word “cheesy” on the shelf for a while.

According to Movember.com, 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. In 2014, over 719,200 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the world got on board, raising over $100 million. That a lot of moustaches and a lot of money.

If raising money isn't your style, perhaps donating is up your alley. Below is a list of all the Canucks taking part in Movember this year; donate whatever you can to support the Canucks during Movember.

Plus, GET THIS: If you donate to an individual (or yourself!) using Visa Checkout, Visa will top up your donation an extra $10! Donations will appear within 3-5 business days.
