LUBBOCK, TX – Employees at a local copy center have put down the razor and adopted facial hair as part of Movember, a worldwide campaign to raise awareness for prostate cancer.

Starting November 1, 28 of Copy Craft’s employees at 6024 45th street committed to growing a mustache for 30 days to alert men of the deadly disease.

“It’s getting there,” said Trey Laverty, Marketing Director.  “The wife doesn’t like it all that much, but that’s alright.”

A normally clean-shaven Laverty said having a mustache cuts his shaving time down by 50%, but he said there’s more perks to growing one than just that.

“Our guys, they wanted to do something to raise awareness for men’s health and prostate awareness,” said Laverty.

According to the Center for Disease Control, prostate cancer claims more than 30,000 lives per year making it the second deadliest form of cancer for men.

“You may get picked on a little bit from you know, grandpa or someone like that, but it's all for fun and for a good cause,” said Laverty.
