WHAT is Movember?

WHEN

Movember started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. It is now seen around the globe every November 1st – 30th, with campaigns in 21 countries.

WHY

To create conversations about men’s health and to find breakthrough solutions that produce tangible improvements in the lives of those dealing with prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

HOW

Men (also known as Mo Bros) sign up online. Start clean-shaven on November 1st then donate their face for 30 days by growing and grooming the best moustache they can muster, raising funds and awareness along the way.

Women, (also known as Mo Sistas) play a key supporting role by signing up as team captains, recruiting Mo Bros, helping to raise funds, and also encouraging the men in their life to action when it comes to their health.

FUNDS

Funds raised are committed to combatting prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems and have supported over 800 men’s health programs to date.

Specifically:Prostate Cancer - Men living with and beyond prostate cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well.

Testicular Cancer - Men living with and beyond testicular cancer have the treatment and care needed to be physically and mentally well.

Mental Health – Men are mentally healthy and take action to remain so. Those who experience mental health problems take action early and live lives free of stigma and discrimination.
