Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler announced that he'll be joining his co-hosts on ESPN 1000's "The Jay Cutler Show" in growing a mustache during the month of November to raise awareness for cancer.

Cutler and co-hosts Marc Silverman and Tom Waddle will grow mustaches from Nov. 12 to Nov. 30 as a part of the "Movember campaign. "Movember" is an annual campaign in which men grow mustaches throughout the month of November to help raise vital awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.

The Bears quarterback tried to get out of the deal by saying that he needed clearance to grow the mustache from his fiancee Kristin Cavallari, but she tweeted the Waddle and Silvy show to announce that the decision was entirely up to Cutler.

Apparently, a trial run that Cutler conducted last week didn't fare too well. "I did a trial run on Friday, and it's not pretty," Cutler said. "(Cavallari) didn't even notice by two hours. I'm in like fourth place, we have two dogs (and a newborn son). It got nothing for a couple of hours. I didn't like (the look of) it. It was bad."
