WAKEFIELD, Mass. - Nov. 22, 2016 - PRLog -- It's Movember, the time of year when the mustache takes over the world for one month. Movember is the global men's health charity encouraging men to grow, and women to support, the mustache for the 30 days of November. Through the power of the mustache, Movember participants and partners raise funds and awareness for men's health.

HDPT's co-founding partners, Ed Harding, PTA and Glenn D'Addario, MSPT, DPT, along with staff members Sean Flaherty, PT, OCS, Steve Sheridan, MSPT, Svet Wilson, PTA, ATC, Robbie Barletta, PTA, Dan McCallum and Chris Foster are joining the cause for the 5th year in a row. The eight men began the month clean-shaven, and are documenting their growth journey on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and on their own HDPT blog.

Why is Movember so important? One of the biggest obstacles men tackle in regards to their health is a reluctance to discuss issues they face either with their partner, family or doctor. Movember was born from the understanding that a fun and engaging initiative could help encourage men to become more actively involved in their own health. Movember aims to increase awareness and support for men's health by getting conversations started, at a grassroots level, educating men about the health risks they face, and raising vital funds for support programs.

"After 5 years, this silly mustache continues to be an iconic way to encourage dialogue about men's health issues," said HDPT president & co-founder Glenn R. D'Addario, MSPT, DPT. "We are happy to have our mustaches be the catalyst for these conversations and to continue to help generate funds that will deliver breakthrough research and support services allowing men to live longer, healthier, happier lives."

Since 2003, millions have joined the Movember Foundation's men's health movement, raising more than $710 million and funding over 1200 breakthrough programs through impact investments, focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

To participate, follow HDPT's photos on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and on their blog, join the HDPT Movember team online, spread the word, donate to the cause and grow a MUSTACHE. Find team HDPT at: http://moteam.co/hdpt. The mustache is our hairy ribbon, our symbol for change.
