Cricket and the moustache have had a long and distinguished history, with many of the game’s greatest names sporting a Mo during their glory days.
Each November, the cricketing community gets into the hairy spirit and throws their support behind men’s health by taking part in Movember.
Men grow and groom their way to moustache glory over the 30 days of the month and women get involved by taking the Move challenge and doing something good for their health while they raise funds for men’s health.
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year-round. Since 2003, millions have joined the movement, raising $770 million to help fund over 1,200 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
The Movember Foundation is Cricket Australia’s official men’s health charity partner and 2016 marks the 9th year of the partnership. Over this time, the cricketing community has helped raise almost $800,000 through the Club Cricket Cares Network.
This year is no different, with cricketing greats Aaron Finch, Mitch Starc, Matt Wade, Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry onboard.
