DC GIVES BACK TO MEN’S HEALTH BY SUPPORTING MOVEMBER WITH A LIMITED EDITION SANDAL COLLABORATION

For the second consecutive year DC is proud to support Movember, an annual charity ‘mo’-vement committed to changing the way men think about, discuss and treat their own health issues by generating awareness and raising money for men’s health.

Movember challenges men (Mo Bros) to grow a Mo (Aussie slang for moustache) for one month only, November, as a symbol in support of fighting men’s health issues and celebrating the Mo.  At the start of November guys register with a clean-shaven face and have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache, while raising money for men’s health and fight against prostate cancer.

In 2007 81 DC ‘Mo Bros’ raised $48,497, with DC President Nick Adcock owning the bragging rights by raising the most money for the cause giving back $18,790.  This year DC is even further committed to supporting Movember by offering the Ponto sandal, that was designed to reflect the 2008 tag line, “United We Believe.” The sandal will be available for $19.95, and portion of the proceeds ($5 of every sandal sold) going directly back to Movember. DC will also host online consumer contests.

“Movember is a great way for all to have some fun while supporting and raising awareness of Men’s Health”, said Nick Adcock.  “Everyone at DC had a ball participating last year and can’t wait to ‘get growing’ again this year.”

To participate please visit dcshoes.com/movember, which goes live November 1, where you can purchase the sandal and be a part of this global effort.  Men can also register starting October 1 at movember.com and create a profile to feature their stache growing progress and collect donations for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

The month of Movember will conclude with Gala Parties in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Chicago and Boston.  The Ponto sandal will be available for purchase at the Gala events in San Diego and Los Angeles.
