Each year the Lonestar SC Coaching staff observes "Movemeber" which is "no shave November" to bring awareness to testicular and prostate cancer in men. The coaching staff have in the past raised money and held contests to see who could grow the best moustache. The late Murray Hanson was a huge part of this annual event and was always a big supporter of the cause. The current staff have now in honor of Murray continued this great cause to bring awareness to testicular and prostate cancer.
Look out to see which Lonestar Coach grows the best beard or moustache!
