Eric Decker campaign to help with men’s cancers Craig Thomas

NASHVILLE, TN (November 4, 2014) — Pro Merch today announced a partnership with New York Jets wide receiver Eric Decker, to support the Movember Foundation through the creation of limited edition t-shirts licensed by the National Football League Players Inc. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from the sale of the tees will support the foundation’s efforts to aide in improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

Beginning Monday, November 3, the limited edition Movember tees will be available for purchase at Target stores in New York as well as online at www.mypromerch.com. Men who participate in Movember (Mo Bros) take action to change the face of men’s health by creating individual Mo Space pages on Movember.com. Decker will encourage fans to join his efforts by signing up on the players’ individual pages.

1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men aged 15-35. These statistics show that now is the time to bring awareness and raise funds for men’s health. Movember challenges men to start clean-shaven on November 1 and grow just a moustache for 30 days, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their moustache-growing efforts. The growth of a moustache sparks conversations and raises vital funds for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. To date, the Movember community has raised more than $550 million dollars and funded over 800 world-class programs in 21 countries.

“Pro Merch proudly supports the effort to change the face of men’s health with our limited edition Movember tees,” said Austin Casselman, Co-Founder and CEO of Pro Merch. “Our company was built on the premise that sports connect people, and programs like this are the basis of our very foundation. We are honored to work with athletes like Eric who continue to make a positive impact in their communities.”

“Health issues like cancer are a reality for far too many men my age, and most don’t realize the statistics and risk,” said Decker. “I’m excited to participate in Movember, grow an epic ‘stache and help raise awareness and funds for this important cause.”
