Where it all began…
Movember is about more than just growing a moustache. The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier and longer. It does this by raising awareness and vital funding for the fight against prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
Movember was born after two mates (Travis Garone and Luke Slattery) met up for a beer in Melbourne, Australia. That was in 2003, and they managed to convince 30 men to grow a moustache. By 2014, 4,746,905 ‘Mo Bros’ and ‘Mo Sistas’ had signed up for the Movember campaign.
Did you know…
Luckily there are no rules on how you should grow your moustache for Movember, so go with whatever floats your boat, whether you are inspired to look like an English gentleman or a French painter – there is something for everyone.
Here are just some of the options available:
Well, Mo Bros are encouraged to grow a moustache during November to promote the importance of men's health.
Mo Sistas, on the other hand, are champions of men's health, not only encouraging the men in their lives to grow a Mo', but actively raising awareness themselves to change the face of men's health.
If you notice any changes when you urinate or have trouble controlling your bladder – this could be a sign of a problem in your prostate.
The most common symptom of testicular cancer is a lump or swelling in part of one testicle. It can be as small as a pea or it may be much larger.
Adult men (19 to 64) should aim to be active daily. Over a week, activity should add up to at least 2 and a half hours of moderate-intensity activity in bouts of 10 minutes or more – one way to approach this is to do 30 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week.
