Next month, several members of our team have signed up to take part in Movember.
Joining a global movement of over 5 million people, our Mo Bros and Mo Sistas will be growing a moustache throughout November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s suicide.
From humble beginnings in Australia in 2003, the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global phenomenon. To date, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world.
Unfortunately, Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women and for largely preventable reasons. Unchecked, prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides.
Throughout the month, we will be bringing you updates on the progress of our teams Mo’s and we would love to hear who you think grows the most impressive Tache.
Derek Petterson, commented, “I think it is fantastic what our team are doing. Raising awareness of an extremely important cause, and hopefully having a bit of a laugh together at the same time.”
