Time To Go the Mo

Movember For Men's Health

Time To Go the Mo

The start of November each year sees many men tossing away the razor in an endeavor to look like a Spanish film star, however the real reason (we think) is to point a spotlight on men's health.

Movember has been around for years and this year I get the feeling more blokes will by trying to grow the mo while raising some dollars for the cause.

To highlight why we need this campaign take a look at these figures;     

STATISTICS ON MENS' HEALTH WORLWIDE

  • 1-in-8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • 1-in-2 men will be diagnosed with cancer
  • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed in men aged 15-29
  • 3-out-of-4 suicide victims are men
  • More than 500,000 men take their own life every year. That's one every minute.

Scary stuff hey?

So if you see a guy with the face fuzz who's giving his best Errol Flynn or Lee Van Cleef a shot, shake their hand and maybe make a donation to the cause.
