Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues – specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Once registered at, men grow and women support a Mo (Mo is Aussie slang for moustache, where Movember began) for 30 days, getting friends and family to donate to their efforts.

What is the Movember Foundation?

The Movember Foundation has become the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health. The challenge to men includes them growing moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

The Movember community has proudly raised over $550 million and provided funding for over 800 programs in 21 countries.  This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health problems.

Why Get Involved?

Because 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and testicular cancer is the most common cancer in males between the ages of 15 and 35.

Who knew all that hair growth was for such a worthy cause! Let’s take care of our men and support Movember!
