For 2012 and beyond, Well-Met is helping promote a Milwaukee network for men’s health initiative Movember. Near and dear to the heart of Well-Met, the combination of men’s health with man-friendly promotions and events, Movember is the perfect cause for us to get behind.
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world. With their Mo’s, these men raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health. Then at the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
Once registered at www.movember.com, men are asked to start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the men and women in their lives, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from Milwaukee can join the Well-Met Team, or create and add their personal or team page to the Milwaukee network so all our fundraising adds up to one total for Milwaukee. You can stay up to date and get in the conversation at the Movember Milwaukee Facebook page and check in here often for updates.
