Movember, the month formerly known as November, is dedicated to growing moustaches and so we’ve pledged to cultivate genuine 100% face grown moustaches for 30 days to raise awareness and funds for men’s health, specifically cancers affecting men.
We have joined the movement and will be donating our upper lips to the cause for 30 days. Our moustaches (Mo) will spark conversations, and no doubt generate some laughs; all in the name of raising vital awareness and funds for cancers affecting men.
We’ve pledged to cultivate genuine 100% face grown moustaches for 30 days to raise awareness and funds for men’s health.
Now, we’re on the hunt for trusty and fearless pioneers to join us by signing up for one of our teams. Together we can change the face of men’s health. In the name of friendly competition, we created a team for each of our 2 stores, Oceanside and Solana Beach, and the choice is yours. The winners will benefit greatly at our Mo Party at the end of November (more details to follow).
To join one of our Movember teams go to:
Why are we so passionate about men’s health?
- 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
- A man is diagnosed with prostate cancer every 2.2 minutes
- 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
- 24% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women
As more people become Citizens of Movember, more lives will be impacted. You can grow a moustache as a Mo Bro, or join as a Mo Sista to show your support and help recruit other Mo growers to the team.
It’s not just for the men
Once registered, Movember will send you all the information you need to start raising awareness and funds for men’s health as part of our Movember team.
Funds raised will help make a tangible difference to the lives of others. Through the Movember Foundation and their men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and LIVESTRONG, Movember is funding world class awareness, research, educational and support programs which would otherwise not be possible. If you’d like to find out more about the programs funded by Movember, please visit http://us.movember.com/about.
We only have a month to grow Mo’s and raise awareness and funds, so please come along for the ride.
