WHAT IS MOVEMBER?
Movember is the annual, worldwide charity movement dedicated to changing the face of men's health- all through the power of the mustache.
Men start clean-shaven on Nov. 1, then grow their mustache for 30 days while raising funds and awareness for men's health: specifically cancer affecting men in the US.
Since its humble beginning in Melbourne, Australia, in 2003, Movember has grown into a global movement with more than 1.1 million participants raising $174 million to date. In the US, Movember raises funds for our men's health partners: the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrated their journey at official end-of-Movember Gala parties held in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Washington, Denver, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle.
Movember's primary campaign objective is to raise awareness around men's health issues, specifically cancers affecting men. We want everyone to know that most cancers are highly curable if caught in the early stages- including prostate and testicular cancer. Movember aims to increase early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment, as this will ultimately reduce the number of deaths from cancer.
It’s time men face some startling health facts:
- After skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common cancer to effect men, regardless of race or ethnicity
- In 2013, about 238,590 new cases of prostate cancer will be diagnosed
- In 2013, about 29,720 men will die of prostate cancer
- Approximately 1 in 6 men will face a prostate cancer diagnosis in their lifetime
- Up to half of men’s cancer cases could be prevented through making healthier diet and lifestyle choices.
- On average, men die five to six years younger than women
