The Mo Bros and Mo Sistas of Movember BVI 2013 will once again spend the month raising as much money as possible towards the education, research, and treatment of prostate cancer. This year’s pirate theme is extremely appropriate for BVI residents, who have a fond affinity for our history of hidden treasure.

The way it works: men are encouraged to sign up—clean shaven—on November 1, to participate in the moustache-growing competition that lasts the entire month. During Movember, participants—aka Mo Bros—are expected to have their moustaches sponsored, enlist the expertise of a moustache coach, post their progress on Facebook or YouTube, use their face as a conversation starter about the charitable cause toward prostate cancer, and embody the Movember motto: ‘Changing the Face of Men’s Health.’

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas participate in the End of Movember Party and Moustache Competition where the Mo Bros compete for the following categories: KPMG Best Pirate, Nanny Cay Sexiest Mo, Broadsword Communications Best Mo Crew, TMF Slow Mo—for the least amount of growth in one month, Harneys Most Booty—for the MoBro who raised the most money, and the Governor’s Office Man of Movember.

The Mo Sistas compete for the honour of being Walkers Global Miss BVI Movember.

This year, the BVI Movember Charitable Trust has set a target of $23,552, representing one dollar for every person living in the British Virgin Islands—according to the last official census.

The Trust will use the money in a continued effort to raise awareness about men’s health issues, to fund prostate cancer research, and to treat men in the territory who are suffering from the disease.
