Leading up to the Moustache Cup, the Marlboros, Jr. Canadiens, as well as a team comprised of GTHL Officials have been participating in the annual “Movember” event, traditionally involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. As of November 14, the teams have raised over $22,000. To get in on the GTHL Challenge and support the teams, visit the GTHL’s Mo Space here.
