For the eighth consecutive year, Lucas Oil Center participated in No-Shave November. This yearly event lets our crew grow out their facial hair for 30 days and is meant to raise awareness for men’s health and cancer screenings.
According to the American Caner Society, other than skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men. About 1 man in 9 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer is more likely to develop in older men and in African-American men. About 6 cases in 10 are diagnosed in men who are 65 or older, and it is rare in men under 40. The average age at diagnosis is about 66.
Screening and testing to find cancer in people before they have symptoms is critically important. For some types of cancer, screening can help find cancers at an early stage, when they are likely to be easier to treat. Organizations like No-Shave November and Movember help to bring awareness each November — and it is our honor to do our part in helping bring about that awareness.
The guys who participated this year did a fantastic job. Here are the final results of No-Shave November.

And thank you to all 12 of our guys who supported No-Shave November and participated this year. There were definitely some impressive beards grown. Lucas Oil Center will be making a donation to a prostate cancer recipient for their efforts. Now it’s time to clean’em up and SHAVE!
