Movember for men’s health
As we know, our men don’t often talk about their health issues and often, it’s us women who are the ones to recognise a problem.
The Movember Foundation is fighting for men to live happier, healthier and longer lives by shaping the landscape for male specific diseases through research and survivorship programmes.
Globally there is still a stigma around diseases that affect men and often men don’t talk about issues that they are experiencing and concerns they may have, which impacts on early detection and essentially life expectancy. The Movember Foundation aims to create a world where men don’t need to suffer or succumb to diseases which are preventable or manageable if they are detected early enough.
How you can join the Movember movement
Movember is not only for your hairier half. You too can get involved and ‘Change the Face of Men’s Health’ by signing up as a Mo Sista on www.movember.com.
Encourage the men in your life to sign up as Mo Bros on the website, to start 1 Movember clean shaven and to grow a Mo for the 30 days of November. Pledge your support and show your encouragement – men often need the reassurance during the month long journey.
MOVE for Movember
This year the Movember Foundation has also added an additional aspect to the month-long campaign, the option to sign up to MOVE.
Studies have proven that incorporating more exercise into your daily routine has many benefits and often makes you feel better, more energised and could possibly add years to your life.
When signing up on the Movember website, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas can choose to make a commitment to MOVE for the 30 days of Movember. This commitment to MOVE can include anything from a brisk daily walk or taking the stairs instead of the lift, to surfing, cycling, swimming or anything that gets the heart rate up.
By signing up as a Mo Sista, you will be joining a growing global network of women who all believe that Mos can be sexy for a good cause!
