Growing out one's facial hair for 30 days is called "Movember" or "No-Shave November," and it's meant to raise awareness of cancer and men's health issues.

These five brave souls at Town Square Media-San Angelo, have decided to accept this year's challenge. We will be bringing you weekly updates as to their progress.

It's a man thing. They start out clean shaven on November 1st, but by November 30th, they should start to look like grizzly bears.

It's all about encouraging every participant to donate the amount they would otherwise spend on grooming products for the month, to the American Cancer Society.

That money is used to fight prostate and testicular cancer.

So, how about the rest of you guys, are you in? It's all for a good cause and remember "you don't have to shave for a month."
