The annual campaign aiming to change habits and attitudes of men to their health has commenced.

Participants ( MoBros) help raise awareness and support by growing a mustache for the month and also participate in a new Move for Movember Challenge . Women ( MoSistas) can also participate and provide support in fundraising events.

Funds  raised help support men's health issues such as prostate and testicular cancer, physical inactivity and poor mental health.

The Movember Foundation aims to tackle men's poor mental health by:

  • Encouraging men to stay connected with family and friends
  • Taking conversations about mental health out of the health system, into workplaces and sports clubs
  • Challenging the negative aspects of masculinity and the impact this has on mental health
  • Develop models to improve the mental health and wellbeing of men

Visit the Movember website for more information on how to participate or take part in the Move for Movember challenge ( 30 MOVEs in 30 days. No MOVE too big or small).
