The men of WDAM have taken on the No-Shave November challenge, and are reaching out to the Pine Belt to support their cause. 

Several on-air WDAM personalities will be growing out their beards and mustaches to raise cancer awareness. 

Each member of WDAM's No-Shave November team has pledged $10 for the cause. The men of WDAM would like to extend the invitation to the public. 

You can join WDAM's team by donating $10, and sending pictures of your beard or mustache on December 1 to pics@wdam.com to be part of our before-and-after slideshow.

Don't want to join the team? No problem! Pine Belt citizens can donate any amount to support WDAM's cause without participating in the facial hair challenge.
