Our Motivation

We need to do a better job of spreading the word and raising money. Mustaches are fun, but we are doing this for much more than awkward facial hair. It's for men's health, cancer research, healthy lifestyles, and education.... In 2013, 7,920 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed, 370 men will die of testicular cancer, BUT because testicular cancer usually can be treated successfully, a man’s lifetime risk of dying from this cancer is very low: about 1 in 5,000.

Help promote men's health

Monday Movember Update... We are up to $263.00 raised. Tips from The Movember Foundation are listed below. Please help up reach $333.00 by the end of November: http://moteam.co/illinois-tech-swimming. Check out all those real mustaches in the attached picture.

EAT A HEALTHY DIET
Fill up with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and choose healthy proteins like lean meats, poultry, fish, beans and nuts. Eat foods low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt and added sugars. Drink water instead of beverages that contain a lot of sugar like soft drinks, sports drinks, fruit drinks, or shakes. Moderation is key, as is eating a wide range of foods to ensure you get a variety of nutrients. The best source of vitamins is from food.

STAY AT A HEALTHY WEIGHT
Know and track your Body Mass Index (BMI) and waistline. Your BMI is calculated from your height and weight, the MAYO CLINIC provides a good calculator. For men with a waistline over 37 inches the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease and general health problems greatly increases. Balance calories from foods and beverages with calories you burn off by physical activities. More than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. Obesity and being overweight pose a major risk for chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke and certain cancers.
