As November begins, the 2020 edition of Movember takes on a new lease of life in support of men’s health.
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up research and motivating men to take action for their health.
Now the movement has grown into more than wearing a mustache and preventing cancer in men. Mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer have become targets of those who rush into the challenges.
More than the mustache
Originally, Movember was created to raise money for research into male cancers. His mustache, a Mo, was grown for the entire eleventh month of the year and people were asked to contribute money to fight male health problems.
From now on, anyone can join the movement. And in different ways. It is obviously still possible to grow your mustache during the 30 days of November.
But we can also move, run, walk 60 kilometers in 30 days. The goal is to do it for the 60 men who kill themselves every hour around the world. We encourage loved ones to donate for every kilometer traveled. It is also suggested to create your own challenge. Whether it’s a really tough physical endurance test, breaking a bad habit, whatever, you have to commit. Whether for a day, several weeks or all year round, you have to find Son Mo and go for it.
Register and donate
It is possible to register on the page Movember and find tips, stories and motivations to complete their challenge. The entourage can contribute by making donations.
You can also embrace the Quebec component by getting a bow tie for Knotvember. Information can be found on the procure website which aims to defeat prostate cancer.
