UMD men’s hockey brings back Movember campaign for men’s health
A big part of the holiday season is about giving back and helping others.
That’s why the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men’s hockey team has re-launched their now-annual Movember campaign. The Bulldogs grow out mustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health.
“It hits close to home with all of us, especially with Zach [Stejskal] the past couple years, and obviously Will [Francis] too. It’s a little different with Will, but I think men’s health is a big topic and it’s a wide variety, right? It ranges from mental health all the way to prostate and testicular cancer, so I think it’s important for us to bring attention to that,” Luke Loheit said, a graduate forward and UMD captain.
In 2021 now-senior goalie Zach Stejskal was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and junior defender Will Francis is currently battling his second round of leukemia.
As of Tuesday night they raised over $1,350 of their $5,000 goal. The fundraiser is open through the end of the month. To donate, Click Here.
