It's that time of year, for dodgy mustasches to appear!

Yes, for the month of November you'll spot epic, bushy, well-combed or sometimes questionable mustaches everywhere raising money for Movember.

However, if growing a 'tache isn't for you, there's plenty of ways you can support the Mo Bros and Mo Sisters all over the world and help change the face of men's health.

The support of Movember has already had a huge impact, giving millions of people access to programmes that better men's health, changing and saving lives.

Unfortunately, our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are still dying too young.

Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men aged 15-39 years of age. Plus, unchecked, prostate cancer rates will double over the next 15 years.

Also, across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 75% of all suicides.

Not to mention the long-term consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, which Movember is helping to combat with funding for 34 separate projects that will support the mental health and wellbeing of men and boys.

Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention, the Movember movement wants to take on it all, and you can help too.

How to get involved

You don't just have grow a mustache for Movember. There's loads of ways you can get involved to raise funding and awareness for men's health.

Rally a crew and do something fun and easy, virtual or in person. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause.

Mo your own way
