The Movember Foundation is the global charity raising funds and awareness for men's health. The organization wants to help men live longer, healthier and happier lives through investing in four key areas: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. Every Movember, we challenge men to grow and women to support a moustache, or to make a commitment to get active and move, both of which spark conversations and raise vital funds and awareness for men's health that will results in funding for the Movember Foundation's men's health programs.
