The Movember Foundation is a global men’s health charity committed to changing the face of men’s health. With an official presence in 21 countries, the Movember Foundation is committed to driving significant improvements for the prioritised men’s health issues – prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
At the start of Movember, guys take action by signing up with a clean-shaven face and for the 30 days of November commit to growing a moustache. These selfless and generous men known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Mo Bros are supported by the women in their lives, affectionately known as Mo Sistas - together, our Mo Community raise money and awareness to change the face of men’s health.
With the sprouting of a new moustache, Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the month, and like a run or walk for charity they use their hairy ribbon to spark conversations around the often ignored issue of men’s health and seek funds to support the work of the Movember Foundation.
At the end of the month, the Movember community celebrates their Mo growing efforts, either by joining us at one of the official Movember Gala Partés, held around the world. Or, by hosting their own end of month event with colleagues, friends or community groups.
