Movember, the month formerly known as November, is when brave
and selfless men around the world grow a moustache, and women step
up to support them, all to raise awareness and funds for men's
health - specifically prostate and testicular cancer.
Prostate Cancer UK is incredibly proud to be the main
beneficiary of the Movember campaign. For the last six years, the
amazing efforts of the Mo Bros and Mo Sistas from across the UK
have significantly contributed to our research initiatives and have
supported men by investing in our services.
Movember was established in 2003 by a few friends over a beer in
a pub just outside Melbourne, Australia. The goal was simple -- to
create a campaign promoting the growth of the moustache among
likeminded people, and to have fun along the way. It is about real
men, talking about real issues and changing the face of men's
health, one moustache at a time. Movember now spans the globe, with
campaigns in 21 countries in 2012.
In 2012, 1.1 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas raised more than £92
million globally; with more than £27 million of that coming from
