Movember Mustache Challenge - Starting by November 3, 2019, the men of Heywood, Orange Public Schools, and the Orange community will start with a clean-shaven face. Grow and groom your mustache throughout November. Don’t Fake it - no beards, no goatees, no fake mustaches! Use the power of your mustache to spark conversation and raise awareness of the health challenges men are facing.

We are asking that the men of Heywood, Orange Public School, and the Orange community take a picture of their clean-shaven face by November 3rd and post it to the Heywood Twitter Account with the hashtags #Heywood and #Movember. Post updated pictures each Monday to show off your Movember mustache and to raise awareness of this important cause.

The Heywood Twitter address is: @HeywoodSTEM
