Movember is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during
the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues
including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and
suicide prevention.

The King encourages others out there to participate in the challenge and
raise awareness for men's health by growing their own epic stache and
sharing on social media with the hashtag #kingstachechallenge.

"We are proud to show our support for this cause and hope our guests
enjoy watching the King's mustache transformation throughout the month
of November," said Alex Macedo, North America, for the BURGER KING®
brand.

The King will have his own profile on www.movember.com
so the world can follow along with his journey.
