Every November, The Movember Foundation, the only global charity solely focused on men’s health, challenges men to grow a mustache to spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health issues. Started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003, Movember is now seen around the globe every November 1st – 30th, with campaigns in 21 countries.
Funds raised go towards supporting innovative world-class men’s health programs supporting key areas such as…
- Prostate and Testicular Cancer research and health services that contribute to less men dying from prostate and testicular cancer and to improve the quality of life for those that live with the disease, both physically and mentally. Prostate cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in men in the United States.
- Mental Health and Suicide Prevention programs that help men and boys stay mentally healthy.
Since 2003, The Movember Foundation has empowered millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement. Through the moustaches grown, the connections created, and the conversations generated, they’ve raised $710 million and helped fund more than 1,200 breakthrough men’s health projects in 21 countries!
