This year's Movember campaign has been successfully followed by Polisen Waterpolo. The initiative started after the idea from both players Richard Ericson and José Javier Veganzones who in the search of a social initiative came up with this great initiative. After that, the cooperation from the rest of the team including coaches and rest of staff has been awesome. Movember (a portmanteau of the diminutive word for moustache, "mo", and "November") is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers, and associated charities. 

The campaign is now over and the club has collected 12.021 kr in total. The player Oliver Cosani has been the "Greatest Mo" with the biggest contribution. We would like to thank so much all donors making this possible! Moreover, the word was spreaded, and friends, family and even other Swedish waterpolo teams followed the idea. In many of the cases, prostate cancer can be prevented with an early check at the age of 40, but not all men are aware of that. The game against SKK so-called "Movember Derby" was very crowded and served as a great exposition to this cause. Of course, we have also been able to see very well grown funny moustaches during last November!

Movember Party

Besides, the team participated in the Gala that took place in Scandic Hotel in Stureplan. It was a great success! Almost all our players attended the party dressed with a suit and with a waterpolo cap. Our assistant coach Christodoulos Marinos received the award of "The Best Mo" of the party whereas the goalkeeper José Javier Veganzones was "proudly awarded" as "The Lame Mo". The cops were also nominated as "Best Mo Team". Very nice atmosphere! Later on, the team received a letter from Movember International thanking us our effort, which we transmit to you. We are looking forward to Movember 2015!
