Movember 2022: Thank you for changing the face of men's health

The month formerly known as November has come to a close, and with it, over 330,000 rockstar fundraisers rallied together for men’s health.

An extraordinary range of moustache styles were on display among our supporters, be it the subtle After Eight, the faithful ol’ Trucker, or a tribute to Motörhead frontman Lemmy (who arguably had the most distinctive moustache in rock n’ roll history). Truly, Movember community members don’t do things by half when it comes to growing Mo’s.

Nor did they hold back when it came to raising much-needed funds and awareness for men’s health. Thanks to them, we’ve funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects since 2003 – in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

And although we’re celebrating 19 years since our founding, take our word for it: we’re just getting started in our mission to help men live healthier, happier and longer lives.

The following facts about Movember 2022 may be curly, but the numbers are serious.

  • We rallied enough fundraisers to fill Old Trafford 4.5 times.
  • 2.6km. That’s how long the hairs in our combined Movember moustaches would be if glued end to end.
  • Mo Movers logged enough kms to travel around the world 107 times. In fact, one person would go through 6,490 pairs of sneakers if they ran the total distance of all our 2022 Mo Movers. Time for some warm-down laps.
  • Over 15,000 people signed up to host a fundraising event during the month. And if they all ran back-to-back, they'd stretch into a three-year non-stop party. That’s a whole lot of havin’ fun, doin’ good.
  • 33,811 geniuses. That’s how many Mo Mavericks came up with their own out-of-the-box ideas for fundraising. Pushing for a lawn mower world record. Cycling the length of New Zealand. Freediving under an iceberg in your underwear. A costume a day, all day, every day. You name it, they showed us the true meaning of Mo Your Own Way.

Such incredible achievements prove how dedicated our community is.

Which is why we’re saying it once more: thank you to our Movember community.

While we’ve got your attention…
