Movember, the month formerly known as
November, is when brave and selfless men
around the world grow a moustache, and
women step up to support them, all to raise
awareness and funds for men's health -
specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer,
mental health and suicide prevention.
What started Movember?
Movember was established in 2003 by a few friends over a
beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia. During
Movember, men grow a moustache for the month, getting
friends, family and colleagues to donate to their effort. Men
and women can also chose to Move or Host a Mo-ment.
They want men to take action to live happier, healthier, longer
lives and do this by investing in these critical areas: prostate
cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide
Movember has created a movement of over 5 million
supporters across the world, funding more than 1,200
innovative men's health projects across more than 20
countries. Prostate Cancer UK is the main beneficiary of the
Movember campaign. For the last ten years, the amazing
efforts of the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across the UK
have significantly contributed to our research initiatives
and have supported men by investing in our services.
