T H E  M O V E M B E R  F O U N D A T I O N  is the global charity raising funds and awareness for men’s health. When it comes to their health, too many men don’t talk, don’t take action and die too young. We want to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives through investing in four key areas:
prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

It’s MOvember!  That means, I grow a moustache for the month of November to raise money and awareness about men’s health issues like; prostate and testicular cancer and mental illness. All YOU have to do is donate to me . . . please, please, please

We fund health programs directly through the Movember Foundation and our men’s health partners.

Prostate and Testicular Cancer:
We invest in research and health services that contribute to less men dying from prostate and testicular cancer and to improve the quality of life for those that live with the disease, both physically and mentally.
Poor Mental Health:
Mental health is an integral part of health. We invest in programs that help men and boys stay          mentally healthy.
Physical Inactivity:
We invest in solutions that encourage men to be physically active and get them to move more.
Men’s health stats
• 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
• Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged
15 - 34 years
• 1 in 4 adults in the US will experience a mental health problem in
a given year
• 3 out of every 4 suicides are men
• Moving on a regular basis can reduce your risk of heart disease,
diabetes, and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early
death by up to 30%


HOW TO GET INVOLVED
The Movember Foundation runs awareness and fundraising activities year-round, with the annual
Movember campaign in November being globally recognized for its fun and innovative approach to raising money and getting men to take action for their health. Every Movember, we challenge men to grow and women to support a moustache or to make a commitment to get active and MOVE, both of
which spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health.
• Men and women sign up at Movember.com
• Choose to Grow, Give or MOVE
• Men start Movember 1st clean-shaven and grow only a moustache for 30 days
• Women and men commit to MOVE and complete 30 days of physical activity
• Get friends and family to donate to change the face of men’s health
Since 2003, we’ve empowered millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement.Through the moustaches grown, the connections created and the conversations generated, we’ve raised over $650 million and helped fund over 1,000 breakthrough men’s health programs.
