Since 2003, Movember has been an active participant in advocating for men’s health around the world. With the goals of reducing the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by the year 2030, Movember seeks to collaborate on projects that will drastically improve the way that men are treated and supported for their health issues. With their main focus being on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer, Movember is changing the way in which men are taking control of their health by providing them with the resources and information they need.
How You Can Make a Difference this Movember
Taking a part of this progressive and revolutionary charity could not be any easier. A quick sign-up will get you ready to take on the challenge. By creating your own fundraising page, complete with your own personalization to let others know why you are participating, you are able to share your profile to ask for donations from friends, families, or even strangers. After you make the account and spread the news of your involvement in a life-changing cause, you can start the physical transformation.
Starting the month of November with an entirely cleanly shaven face, men can spend the rest of November giving their razor a well-deserved break as they grow out their mustaches. If you don’t have a mustache or cannot commit to growing yours out, there are multiple other ways for you to participate. If you enjoy walks, Make Your Move provides you with a goal to walk 60 miles within the month of November in remembrance of the 60 men lost to suicide every hour globally. You can also host a Mo-ment, inviting all of your friends and family to any event of your choosing, with the goals of raising money and awareness of men’s health. If you prefer to challenge yourself in another way, Mo Your Own Way is the perfect choice for you to push your physical strength and endurance while also bringing attention to the importance of talking about men’s health.
Joining the Baltimore team will help you get connected and welcome you into a community near you of others who are participating in Movember. With a way to work together to reach a financial goal, or even a physical goal, such as the amount of miles walked, participating in a charity has never been more supportive. Until men’s health is given more attention and more resources are made easily accessible to men globally, Movember will continue to work towards its goals of reducing the amount of men dying prematurely. With a team to help you in this challenge, you can support a great cause while also working together to make a difference for men all around the world.
