Health statistics for men are not that impressive! More men than women get diagnosed with cancer and more men die from it.

Movember is an annual, month-long celebration of the moustache, highlighting men’s health issues, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.
Mo Bros, supported by their Mo Sistas, start Movember (November 1st) clean shaven and then have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their moustache. During Movember, each Mo Bro effectively becomes a walking billboard for men’s health and, via their Mo, raises essential funds and awareness for Movember’s men’s health partners – the Cancer Society and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.
Since starting in Australia in 2003, Movember has continued to grow each year, both in terms of participation numbers and funds raised.
With the Movember funds it has received the Cancer Society has undertaken a wide variety of projects.
One project funded with money raised by Movember is the CanWork toolbox website.
