DC Movember Moustache Blog

Week One

For its second consecutive year of involvement in Movember, DC is stepping up its support with new contests and opportunities that raise money for the cause. Last year, 81 DC employees dubbed ‘Mo Bros’ raised $48,497. This year, the DC ‘Mo Bros’ are back, and now the participation has extended to include DC’s team riders, Nate Adams and Travis Pastrana.

Nate and Travis are growing Mo’s, so every week we’ll be documenting the growth of their Mo through photo and video updates on here at twmx.com and www.dcshoes.com/movember. Log on to donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation by sponsoring a DC rider’s Mo.
