It’s Movember! A Month to Raise Vital Awareness in Support of Men’s Health

It’s Movember! A Month to Raise Vital Awareness in Support of Men’s Health
An internationally recognised campaign, Movember, was established by the International Movember Foundation and is held annually during the month of November. It encourages millions of people around the world to grow real or wear fake moustaches (or Mo’s) to raise vital awareness and funds in support of men’s health, including prostate cancer.

The Official Movember rules for men wishing to grow a mo are:

  • For the entire month of Movember each ‘Mo Bro’ must grow and groom a moustache
  • Each ‘Mo Bro’ must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean-shaven face
  • There is to be NO:
    • Joining of the mo to the side burns - that’s considered a beard
    • Joining of the handlebars to your chin - that’s considered a goatee

 

Women, or ‘Mo Sistas’, are also encouraged to get involved by wearing fake moustaches or participating in fundraising activities.
