Happy Movember

Nov 05, 2020 - Movember is an annual movement involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.

Behind each "Mo" grown in the name of men's health is a unique, personal, and powerful story. They are grown for dads, brothers, sons, stepdads, friends…the most important men in our lives.

There are other ways to participate in Movember:

Move for Movember
Run or walk 60 miles over the month. That’s 60 miles for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.

Host a Mo-ment
Rally a crew and do something fun and easy, virtual or in person. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause.

Mo Your Own Way
Whether it’s a grueling test of physical endurance or a not-so-sweaty pledge to kick a bad habit. Whether it’s a day, over several weeks, or across the year – take whatever Mo Your Own Way means to you and run with it.

By 2030, Movember aims to:

  • Reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
  • Reduce the rate of male suicides by 25%.
  • Halve the number of deaths from prostate cancer.
  • Halve the number of men dying from testicular cancer.
  • Halve the number of men experiencing serious mental and physical side effects from treatment for prostate cancer or testicular cancer.

 

Whatever your style is,
Whatever your reasons are,
Whatever your month holds:
Whatever you grow will save a Bro.
