Movember in November
By Meeghan, 2 November, 2008
Movember is an annual charity event aimed at increasing awareness of men’s health.
At the start of November, guys who are participating register with a clean-shaven face and then spend the next 28 days growing and grooming their ‘Mo’, while raising money along the way for prostrate cancer and depression.
Perhaps due to an attitude that “real men” are tough, most blokes don’t seek out a doctor for regular health check ups or illness. This may be the reason why the average life expectancy for men is 5 years less than for females. Movember aims to change these attitudes and put the fun back in men’s health.
Men, book in for a yearly health check up every Movember!
