Movember is back!

Yes, the time of year is upon where you'll see epic, bushy, well-combed or sometimes questionable moustaches at every turn.

Mo Bros and Mo Sisters all over the world are calling on you to join them this November and help change the face of men's health.

The support of Movember has already had a huge impact, giving millions of people access to programmes that better men's health, changing and saving lives.

However, our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are still dying too young.

Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged 15-39 years of age. Plus, unchecked, prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years.

Also, across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides.

Not to mention the long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, which Movember is helping to combat with funding for 34 separate projects that will support the mental health and wellbeing of men and boys.

Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention, the Movember movement wants to take on it all, and you can help too.

How to get involved

You don't just have grow a moustache for Movember. There's loads of ways you can get involved to raise funding and awareness for men's health.

Make a move

Run or walk 60km over the month of November. That’s 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.

Host a mo-ment

Rally a crew and do something fun and easy, virtual or in person. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause.

Mo your own way

Whether it’s a gruelling test of physical endurance or a not-so-sweaty pledge to kick a bad habit. Whether it’s a day, over several weeks or across the year – take whatever Mo Your Own Way means to you and run with it.

Sign up at movember.com/register or donate to a Mo Bro or Mo Sister’s efforts.

Movember's goal is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by the year 2030.
