Combining FUN with a SERIOUS CAUSE is a powerful motive, and this year we are taking part as a group initiative to raise both funds and awareness of men's health issues.
Movember started in Australia with a core of 30 individuals who used their upper lip to generate conversations about health and raise awareness for 3 key areas - prostrate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
In 2012 over 1.1 million individuals had adopted the cause and signed up for Movember, with £27 million raised in the U.K. alone. Mo Bros grow moustaches and Mo Sistas get involved too by supporting Mo Bros and raising awareness with their own family and friends (see video clip).
You will find lots of resource and educational material by visiting uk.movember.com - talking about men's health shouldn't be taboo within families. Make a difference and join with us.
If you would like to make a donation (however large or small) to our team effort, or to any individual within the team, please visit our group page at http://moteam.co/the-george-veterinary-group . Please remember to GIFT AID it if you can.
Thank you for making an everlasting impact on men's health.
