Mo’ mustache, no problems for local men’s health group

Promoting men’s health is easy as growing a mustache for a local group that calls themselves the Simply Charming Mo’s.

For Kyle resident Sean Claes, who heads the group, growing the mustache is a way he and many others across the country raise awareness for men’s health issues.

Movember is a movement that started in 2003 with the intention of spreading awareness of men’s health.

Claes said the movement was created as men’s health often goes by the wayside.

The premise of Movember is simple. Those who participate grow mustaches to become “walking” billboards, Claes said.

“[For Movember] men grow and women support a Mo (mustache) for 30 days to become walking, talking billboards for our men’s health causes – prostate and testicular cancer initiatives,” Claes said. “We are raising money and awareness for men’s health issues because, face it, guys don’t like talking about things like testicular cancer, prostate exams, depression, and doctor’s visits.

Kyle’s Movember movement began in 2012 with the creation of the Simply Charming Mo’s.

Over the years, Claes said the group has dedicated themselves to creating awareness through the community and social media.

Helping further the group’s cause was the Concerts for a Cause concert series. The event is held monthly to help promote nonprofit causes in the Buda and Kyle area.

This November, Concerts for a Cause held its November concert for the Simply Charming Mo’s. The event featured support from several local area businesses.

“The amount of support we get from the community is amazing.” Claes said. “We’re here to get everyone out for a good time, and do a good thing.”
