    November 1st marks the beginning of men’s health awareness through a movement to support, and help stop, men from dying so young. Movember is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale. They are addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Through experience, the foundation knows what works for men and how to fund the most innovative research to have both a global & local impact. They are independent of government funding, which allows them to invest quicker in what works. In 13 years they have funded more 1,200+ men’s health projects around the world.

    Want to be a part of it this month? Here’s how:

    1. Grow Your Mo (moustache) & raise funds – The moustache is their ribbon. This is the most popular way to raise awareness this month. Grow your MO, groom it, maintain it, care for it & show it off for 30 days. See more: https://us.movember.com/register
    2. Take the Move Challenge – This challenge supports your physical activity during Movember. What is the Move challenge? It’s whatever you make it! Run a race. Learn to rock climb. Work out in costume. Try something new, beat your best and raise funds for men’s health. See more: https://us.movember.com/get-involved/move
    3. Host an Event – Mo Bros and Mo Sistas know how to get creative and have a good time. Whether it’s band night, a dinner party or a golf tourney – this Movember, get together to raise funds, make noise & stop men from dying too young. See more: https://us.movember.com/get-involved/host
