|WHAT:||The Movember Foundation is the global charity raising funds and awareness for men’s health.
Since 2003, we’ve empowered millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement. Through the moustaches grown, the connections created, and the conversations generated, we’ve raised $650 million and helped fund 1,000 breakthrough men’s health programs in 21 countries.
|WHEN:||Movember started in Melbourne, Australia in 2003. It is now seen around the globe every November 1st – 30th, with campaigns in 21 countries.
|WHY:||We want to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives through investing in four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical activity.
|HOW:||Every Movember, we challenge men to grow and women to support a moustache or make a commitment to get active and MOVE for 30 days. Both are about taking real action for health and are done to spark conversation and raise vital funds and awareness.
|FUNDS:||Funds raised go towards supporting innovative world-class men’s health programs supporting our four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. To date, the Movember Foundation has helped fund 1,000 men's health programs.
We fund health programs through the Movember Foundation and our men’s health partners.
Prostate and Testicular Cancer:
While we have made great strides, there is still much work to be done. When it comes to their health, too many men don’t talk, don’t take action, and die too young.
