One of the world’s most celebrated moustaches is coming to Dalhousie.

Canadian astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield will be stopping by campus sometime in 2014 to personally congratulate last Movember’s big winners, as well as give a public lecture.

Dal raised the most money per capita in Canada for the global men’s health charity, with 645 students and faculty raising $93,566. Elsewhere in Canada, the University of Toronto took top prize globally, with 977 students and faculty raising $148,449.

Several faculties at Dal raised money, but the most successful was the Rowe Mo’ Bros & Sistas team. Its 87 members raised $33,620, the 32nd most successful team in Canada and 97th in the world.

Two of the team’s leaders, Mike Wilkes and Warren Mosley, ranked amongst the top 10 individual raisers in Canada. They finished in first and sixth places respectively, earning a combined $12,376.
