Mankato Doctors Team Up For No Shave November to Support Men's Health

Posted: Updated:

Mankato Clinic doctors are using a beard–growing competition to create awareness of men's health issues.

This through a friendly competition of No Shave November to raise money for various charities.

Seven doctors have grown out their whiskers for about a month to help encourage men to see their doctor.

James Benzmiller says, "Without our wives we probably wouldn't prod and especially get our prostate exam. But as a whole, men need to be more proactive, know that we have issues and go and be seen."

At the end of the competition, a judge will decide who has the best beard.

The loser of each match will make a contribution to the other's charity.
