What is Movember?
Movember is a movement for men's health. For 30 days in the month formerly known as November, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas rally to support the cause, get people talking and raise funds. There are two ways to participate: grow your moustache for 30 days, or take the MOVE challenge and get active each day for 30 days. Some Mo Bros do both! Together we're tackling some of the biggest health issues faced by men – prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.
How can you get your community involved?
Don’t Mo alone! Get your favorite restaurant or bar, your workplace, sports teams, community groups, barbershops and other local businesses to join in. Organize into teams to see who can grow the best moustache, MOVE more, or raise the most funds. We’ll lend a hand to make sure your Movember campaign is a memorable one.
1. Start a team
When you sign up, create a team (or join an existing one) to kick things off. Recruit your social circle, old fraternity brothers, your Mom’s book club or the local bartenders.
2. Inspire your community
Put up posters, get local restaurants to print Movember coasters with your team on it, or offer free Wifi for customers by changing your password to MOVEMBER.
3. Plan something big
Bring everyone together for some fun. Host a MOVE event, a special fundraising dinner, or a Freddie Mercury Karaoke Mo Off at the neighborhood bar.
