From the traditional “handlebar” to the “rock star” and even the “connoisseur”, competition has been fierce among the Broome Air Services team to grow an impressive moustache for this year’s Movember event.
For a third year running, BAS pilots have shown their support and raised money for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and mental health.
Last year, the boys raised $3000. They hope to raise the bar this year.
Movember is a popular fundraiser that attracts men throughout Australia and the world to grow a mo for a good cause.
The pilots started with a clean shaven face on November 1 and have since grown mos of all styles and lengths – from the sophisticated to the surreal.
BAS director Peter Christoudias said the team took part in Movember because it was for a great cause.
“It highlights an important fundraiser and applies to all men,” he said.
However, he said the boys would be looking forward to shaving in December, as their growths were becoming “itchy and annoying”.
While the boys enjoy some healthy competition, mo captain Rory Kinnane has managed to sprout a healthy pair of handle bars within just two weeks.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Movember has grown to become a global event, inspiring more than 1.9 million “Mo Bros” to join the fun.
