Marlborough – Marlborough High School (MHS) male students, faculty and staff put away their razors for the month of November to support often-ignored men’s health issues.

MHS participated in the international “Movember” movement, growing their moustaches – or “Mos” – to raise funds to highlight and support prostate and testicular cancer research. Similar to other pledge-type fund-raisers, the “Mo Bros” sought sponsors for their hair-raising efforts.

Those who were unable to participate – including their female “Mo Sista” counterparts – supported the effort by purchasing faux Mos, pins and other awareness-raising items.

The Marlborough Mo Bros and Mo Sistas raised $1,286 as of Dec. 3 for their Movember efforts. Just as importantly, they served as human billboards for men’s health issues, prompting conversations about the importance of health risk education, early detection and effective treatment.
