‘Movember’ Raising Awareness For Prostate, Testicular Cancer

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The scruffy look is in across the country — at least for the month of November. “Movember” is officially in full swing.

Men all over the country are starting the month with a clean shave and letting it grow in an effort to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer.

Local “mo-bro’s” can get a free shave Thursday at the Nomad World Pub on Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis.
