What is Movember?

You may have heard the term Movember before, or even noticed men growing moustaches only in the month of November.
But what is this hair-themed month all about?
Well, Movember is an initiative that originated in Melbourne, Australia (where ‘mo’ is short for moustache) and raises awareness of men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
In the month of November every year, the Movember Foundation asks people around the world to take part in men’s health awareness and fundraising activities.
Men (called Mo Bros) are encouraged to grow a moustache every November in commemoration. People also hold fundraising walks, bike rides, and other events.
Since 2003, when the movement began, the Movember Foundation has provided funds for 1,250 men’s health projects worldwide and raised over $100 million in cash.
Some people take part in Movember just for fun and to have a bit of a laugh, but many people take this month-long commitment extremely seriously. Whatever your opinion is, I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s a pretty good way to get people talking about men’s health issues and raise awareness.
