Men’s Health Is a Hairy Issue For Islanders

The New York Islanders grew mustaches during November to show their support for men’s health issues embraced as part of the mission of the Movember Foundation. Movember helps raise awareness for four areas of men’s health: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. As professional athletes, the Islanders wanted to promote healthy lifestyles while sporting the mustache as the symbol of the foundation.
