Getting ready for Movember
Movember is approaching. That time of year when people may begin to look like they have had a rough night. But as the month wears on a full moustache in all its splendour (or otherwise) gradually appears. The Movember Foundation has raised over £440million and funded over 1200 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide prevention. Its aim is to fund innovative, breakthrough research and support programmes that enable men to live happier, healthier and longer lives.
This Movember, in addition to ‘growing a mo’, men (and women) are being asked to ‘Make your move’ by running or walking 60 kilometres over the month. This is to acknowledge the 60 men lost each hour, every hour, to suicide.
People are also being encouraged to host a Mo-ment, a get together raising funds through doing what groups already get a ‘kick out of’.
