It’s the start of November and with that kicks off Movember, a movement surrounding men’s health and facial hair.
The Movember Foundation’s focus is to stop men from dying too young. Our fathers, partners, brothers, and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about, and we can’t afford to stay silent.
That’s Why We Are Taking Action
The Movember Foundation is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. They are addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
They know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. They’re independent of government funding, so they can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. In 15 years they’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
By 2030, they’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
Join the Movement
There are three major ways for you to get involved:
- Grow Your Mo, Save A Bro – Your Mo (mustache) can inspire donations, conversations, and real change. The men’s health crisis calls for big minds, and big solutions. But there’s a smaller, hairier solution to the men’s health crisis. A solution you can grow yourself. It’s sitting under your nose. Grow a Mo this Movember, and you can stop men from dying too young.
- Make Your Move – Put one foot in front of the other to raise funds for men’s health. Move this Movember by running or walking 60 miles over the month. That’s 60 miles for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour. You don’t have to be an ultra-athlete or own the latest kicks. The move is simpler than that. Hit it fast. Take it slow. Run solo. Join a team. Go outside. Or jump on the treadmill. Call on friends and family to back you with a donation, and then chip away, your way. You can stop men from dying too young.
- Get Hosting – Raise the roof with a get-together and raise much-needed funds for men’s health. This Movember, any chance you can get together with mates is a chance to raise much-needed funds for men’s health. Cook up a fancy dinner. Tee up a sports match. Pump the tunes at a party. Or set up a Shave Down – a group shave-off of facial hair to get the month started. Host a Mo-ment. It’s the easiest way to stop men from dying too young.
The Halton Pardee family hopes you join us this November as we take on the challenge of Movember. Together, we can make a huge difference.
