What is Movember?


Movember is a charity organization that tackles men’s health on a global scale, year round. Movember addresses some of the biggest health issues faced by men; prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years, and testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Half a million men take their own life every year. That’s one every minute. Check out for more information.
