The month of October may be painted pink by a large health awareness campaign, but every year since 2004, November follows with a quickly growing campaign for men’s health issues. The Movember movement rallies men to make themselves literally the face of prostate and testicular cancer initiatives by growing moustaches to raise awareness and funds for those causes.
Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in over a dozen countries including the US. By growing a moustache, men will often get asked about it which serves as an opening to talk about the movement and initiate the ask for support.
This year, Well-Met is helping promote Movember events planned by the Milwaukee regional Network. Milwaukee Men participating on their own or as a team can link their efforts to the Milwaukee Network so we can show the world that Milwaukee means business when it comes to men’s health.
Check out the Movember page here at Well-Met for more information and and up to date listing of all the goings on in Milwaukee related to Movember and get ready to start off November 1st with your page or team and a clean face to serve as a walking billboard for men’s health for the rest of the month.
