Shave those beards and goatees, but steer clear of that moustache. Why just a moustache? People notice, they talk and they ask questions. It’s Movember, and it’s time to spark some conversations about men’s health. This isn’t “No Shave November;” this is a movement to take action and raise awareness. Movember is a month-long event during which men are encouraged to grow their moustaches in an effort to build awareness on prostate and testicular cancer. The Movember Foundation stands to “change the face of men’s health” and does so by hosting galas and races all over the world. By encouraging men to get annual checkups, be aware of family history and adopt healthier lifestyles, the Movember Foundation hopes to increase early cancer detection and effective treatments. The ultimate goal of the movement is similar to many of its kind: decrease preventable deaths.
The Movember Foundation takes a light-hearted approach to what can be a grim topic, and through their use of humor, they are able to spread the word and recruit “Mo Bros” and “Mo Sistas” to join the cause. You can find a Movember event in your area or make a donation. Since 2003, more than $446 million has been raised for the education, awareness, and treatment of men struggling with prostate and testicular cancer, as well as other men’s health risks. This is all because of people like you; people who care enough to stand up for a cause.
