Movember is an international, annual event to raise awareness of men’s health issues, namely prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s mental health and suicide prevention.
Across the globe throughout November men grow out their moustaches, to raise awareness and funds for all the dads, brothers, sons and mates in our lives.
This year, the Belsize Men have done us all proud in an extraordinary effort of growing their moustaches and raising over £2,300!
Huge congrats to this marvellous moustache growing!
The cause means a great deal to every member of Belsize, and it is a cause we are particularly proud to support each year. One team members shared his reasons for taking part:
“My uncle passed away from cancer a few months ago and he was never one to talk about his problems. I decided to do Movember this year to raise awareness for men’s cancer health but also for men’s mental health because had my uncle spoken to somebody sooner about his cancer symptoms, then he may be alive today.”
Since its conception in 2003, the charity has done a huge amount to change the face of men’s health. To ensure their impact is significant, far-reaching and long-lasting, Movember prioritise funding for the three biggest health issues facing men: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. Now, they not only raising awareness and funds, but also unite experts from around the world, creating a global network and sharing knowledge and resources.
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men. Today over 5 million people take part in Movember to support the cause.
