Enter the “Mos for Massey” Social Media Contest!

Show us your mo' and enter the contest

“Movember” is a campaign that encourages men to grow moustaches during the month of November to help raise awareness for testicular cancer, prostate cancer and mental health issues. VCU Massey Cancer Center invites everyone (men, women and kids!) to join the “Movember” movement and help us raise awareness for men’s cancers by taking part in our “Mos for Massey” contest. “Mos for Massey” encourages people to submit pictures of their (real or fake) moustaches for a chance to win prizes, be recognized on VCU Massey’s social media sites and help raise awareness for men’s cancers! Please continue reading for contest rules and prizes.

Rules:

  1. Take a picture of your (real or fake) moustache and email it to TeamMassey@vcu.edu with “Mos for Massey” in the subject line or send us a private message through our Facebook page.
