For the whole of November, Winning Moments are supporting and raising awareness for Movember!
Movember are the leading charity in men’s health and since their launch in 2003, they have funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world. They support 3 main causes of premature male deaths:
* Prostate Cancer
*Mental Health & Suicide
Did you know? 1 in 8 UK men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. This is the most common cancer for men in the UK, but as Movember say; “It doesn’t have to be like this, we’re taking action.”- movember.com
Did you know? Testicular cancer is diagnosed very young and is the most common cancer for young men in the UK. “It doesn’t have to be like this, we’re taking action.”-movember.com
Did you know? On average, one man around the world dies from suicide every minute of the day. “It doesn’t have to be like this, we’re taking action.”-movember.com
How are they taking action?
Movember are funding projects that support these causes all around the world, and raising awareness for men so that they can notice the signs and make the change that is needed for these ground-breaking statistics. They prioritise their funding to reach those 3 biggest health issues facing men today.
“BY 2030, WE AIM TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF
MEN DYING PREMATURELY BY 25%.”– movember.com
Why the moustache?
It all started in a way that most men can relate to: in the pub! In 2003, two friends; Travis Garone and Luke Slattery, met for a quiet pint in Melbourne, Australia, and thus, Movember was born!
They discussed how the moustache was a trend that was fading, so they brought it back in the best way possible and found 30 men willing to take up the challenge.
Skip forward 16 years later in 2019 where over 5 million people now support and take part in Movember!
