MOVEMBER

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men's health. By 2030, we will reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.

Millions have joined the movement, raising over £440m to help us fund over 1,200 men’s health projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends face a health crisis that isn’t being talked about. We can’t afford to stay silent. We have one goal: to stop men dying too young.

MOVEMBER

This Movember, the month formerly known as November, there are three ways to get involved to support men’s health: Grow a moustache, Move by walking or running 60 kms throughout the month, or Hosting a Mo-ment. Sign up at movember.com
