It is Movember again and in this week’s Wacky Wednesday article we would like to encourage all men and women to support this amazing cause!
In 2003 the Movember Foundation started with only 30 men and today it has grown into a global phenomenon.
This was not started as an excuse to not shave but rather a chance to grow a ‘stache or beard worthy of a 1970’s porn star all while raising awareness and money for men’s health!
Men’s health has been on a decline and according to the Movember Foundation’s website:
“Men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons.
Unchecked, prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged 15 – 39 years of age. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides.”

If you want to fully participate in Movember, register to be counted amongst the millions that grow out their moustaches for a good cause. Then, you can choose how to participate:
- You can simply grow your moustache and use it as a talking point to start important conversations about men’s health.
- Participate in “Move for Movember,” during which you’ll commit to walking or running 60 miles over the course of the month. The number 60 represents the 60 men’s lives lost to suicide every hour across the world.
- You can host a “Mo-Ment,” or an event to raise awareness about men’s health.
Let’s join this cause and fight for our health, the men in our lives’ help and most importantly… for each other!
