Now a yearly club fundraising effort, this Movember seventeen of our LA Galaxy San Diego plus two of our Carlsbad Galaxy male coaches raised a MASSIVE combined total of $10,136 for men’s health by attempting to grow ridiculous looking handlebar moustaches in return for sponsorship/donations.

Team captain Patrick Trolan commented, “Last Movember we absolutely crushed it and I thought there was no topping that, but this year the coaches have went above and beyond to raise money for this fantastic foundation. Several coaches raised well over $1000 each with Coach Steve Carroll earning top spot with an amazing $1,724 raised. Some of the marketing ideas behind their mini campaigns were very funny and creative. It was a great team effort and a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all who donated! Roll on next Movember!”

The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. They achieve this by challenging men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
