This event is all about raising funds and awareness in support of the Movember Foundation. Movember works to stop men dying too young.
From the Movember Foundation:
The state of men’s health is in crisis. Men experience worse longer-term health than women and die on average six years earlier. Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years. Testicular cancer rates have already doubled in the last 50. Three quarters of suicides are men. Poor mental health leads to half a million men taking their own life every year. That’s one every minute.
OUR FATHERS, PARTNERS, BROTHERS AND FRIENDS ARE FACING THIS HEALTH CRISIS AND IT’S NOT BEING TALKED ABOUT.
WE CAN’T AFFORD TO STAY SILENT.
