Keep that moustache trim – and benefit cancer research at the same time

Carol Chapman doesn’t want to see any of the Movember moustaches around town unkempt

Carol Chapman doesn’t want to see any of the Movember moustaches around town unkempt.

That’s because Chapman’s A Cut Above salon, dubbed the “official moustache trimmers” is offering free grooming to all men who have grown a ‘stache for Movember – a movement to support prostate cancer awareness and research.

“We have all these guys running around town with moustaches, we want them to look nice, right,” Chapman said.

Men are welcome to drop in anytime until Nov. 30 to have their moustaches trimmed and sculpted at A Cut Above in the Campbell River Common mall.

At the end of the month, Chapman is also volunteering her time to get all those men clean-shaven once again at a special Movember bash. On Nov. 29, local realtor Byron Maier is throwing his third annual A Mo for the Bros gala at Moxie’s from 6-10 p.m. to raise money for prostate cancer research through a silent auction. Chapman will be on hand with her barber chair to shave off all the moustaches.

Moevember begins each year on Nov. 1 and throughout the month, normally clean-shaven men are encouraged to grow a moustache and raise funds for cancer research through sponsors. The campaign is also aimed at raising awareness and encouraging men to undergo routine prostate exams to ensure early detection. Maier got on board locally with Movember because of his father.

“My dad went through prostate cancer four years ago,” Maier said. “He survived because he got checked.”

Maier said both men and women are invited to the Nov. 29 gala and he’s encouraging everyone who can to donate to the silent auction. Maier can be reached at
