Who is Movember®?

Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave and selfless men around the world grow a moustache, and women step up to support them, all to raise awareness and funds for men’s health – specifically mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

Movember was established in 2003 by a few friends over a beer in a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia. During Movember, men typically grow a mo for the month, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their effort and raising awareness in the process. As the charity has grown, men and women also get involved by choosing to Move or Host a Mo-ment.

The aim? They want men to take action to live happier, healthier, longer lives. Along the way, millions have joined the movement across the world and they have now funded more than 1,250 innovative men’s health projects across more than 20 countries.
