Why You Should Grow A Mustache This Month

Prostate cancer statistics are staggering. Every year, over 164,690 new cases of prostate cancer are diagnosed, and almost 30,000 men die from it. It’s the second most deadly cancer affecting men in the U.S.

This November, we challenge our male readers to become a “Mo Bro” by participating in The Movember Foundation’s “Movember.” The campaign aims to “change the face of men’s health” by asking men to grow a mustache. To participate, you can sign up on the Movember Foundation’s website. The rules are simple: You start off clean-shaven, then let nature take its course over the next 30 days. Be sure to document your mustache growth with lots of selfies. 

Beyond getting creative with your facial hair, Movember encourages participants to raise funds for men’s health issues including: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health. Start a mustache trend at work and encourage co-workers to get involved. Bring your personal campaign to social media. You may even consider holding a friendly competition for best mustache. 

Women can also participate in Movember (called Mo Sistas) and support the men in their lives by promoting the importance of men’s health. Mo Sistas sign up, start a team, and fundraise – they do everything Mo Bros do, they just don’t grow a “Mo”!

Everyone can partake in raising awareness for these important men’s health issues this month, and all year long.
