What is Movember?
Across the world, men die six years younger than women on average, for reasons that are largely preventable. But it doesn’t have to be this way: we can all take action to live a longer, healthier and happier life.
The Movember campaign started with 30 participants in 2003 and has now grown to over 5 million Mo‑growers in 2017. This global campaign has been helping raise awareness of men’s health whilst specifically raising money for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health & suicide prevention.
Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues. By encouraging men to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis & effective treatments and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths.
No matter the shape or style of your Mo this Movember, your face can inspire donations, conversations and real change.
Commit to walking or running 60 kilometres over the month. That’s 60 kilometres for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour.
Raise funds by doing what you already get a kick out of. Get your mates together for a Mo-ment.
