movember

movember_day_seven Movember is now well underway, unfortunately that is not the case for my prepubescent upper lip.

As I mentioned on Movember Day One, I had forgotten how difficult it was to actually grow a Mo. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve grown a Mo but always part of a fully fledged beard & never counting the number of days it’s taken me to get from a 12 year old boy to a legend of a man.

I still have 23 days to hopefully inject some testosterone in to my upper lip & by end of Movember I’ll be proud of my effort. Even with my poor effort ‘growing’ beneath my nose, you can still offer your support…

Movember is much more than growing an awesome Mo, oh no, it’s much more than that…

The Movember Effect: Awareness & Education, Survivorship, Research

The funds raised in the US support prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Together, the three channels work together to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world-class programs in line with our strategic goals in the areas of awareness and education, survivorship and research.

movember_day_1I decided that this year I would grow a moustache (Mo) for Movember – forgetting how rubbish I am at actually growing a Mo.

Movember, for those not cool, is a time when men around the globe decide to grow a Mo to raise awareness & support men’s health – mainly prostate cancer. Starting Movember 1st, men start clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.

Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
