The month formerly known as November is dedicated to growing a “MO” (Australian slang for moustache) and raising awareness and funds for men’s health.

It’s MOvember at IMS! For the seventh consecutive year, some of the male faculty at IMS have joined the MO-vement and have donated their upper lips to the cause for 30 days. The many moustaches (both the pitiful and impressive) around campus have sparked conversations, and no doubt generated some laughs. The brave members of the Indian MO-untain team have pledged to taint their Thanksgiving photos, and agreed to live with an itchy upper lip; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.

The Ladies of Indian Mountain joined together to show support by not only allowing their husbands or boyfriends to grow a “MO” but by starting a MoLadies team. The MoLadies presented the Pecchia brothers with a donation at Morning Meeting.

The following comes from Dave Pecchia, Team Leader:

“Men’s health is one of many causes we here at Indian Mountain School are passionate about, and, in order to make a difference during the month of MOvember, we need your help to raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health, including prostate and testicular cancer initiatives, mental health, and overall prevention.

“We hope to enlighten our students, as well as the greater school community, on the importance, prevention, and hopefully the elimination of certain men’s health issues. We are using MOvember as an opportunity to increase our students’ awareness of the health issues that men face today. Through education, appreciation, and awareness, maybe we can make a difference in someone’s life. We are asking you to help support our journey by making a donation. The size of the donation isn’t important, every little bit helps MOvember continue its funding of world-class programs.”
