The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a mustache for the entire month. The mustache becomes the ribbon for men's health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men. " according to the official website.

Captain Zak McClellan helped to spearhead the movement with the Bees.

"When I first heard about the Movember movement a few years ago I felt it was something we should always do. I talked with the team this year, and everyone is on board for growing a vicious mustache not only to help scare away cancer, but also our opponents, so go donate.and help our muzzies get a little more fuzzy!!!" said McClellan.

Killer Bees fans are encouraged to participate as well either by growing their own mustache or by donating. When making a donation fans can donate by visiting and searching for 'RGV Killer Bees'. All proceeds go directly to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the LIVESTRONG Foundation.
