Why support Movember?

Around the globe, men are dying too young. But it doesn’t have to be like this.

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health around the globe. Mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer – we’re taking them all on.

And it’s all thanks to an incredible community of passionate Movember supporters. People like you.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to grow a moustache to take part?

Men’s health affects everyone. So, if you can’t (or don’t want to) grow a Mo, don’t fret, there are plenty of other ways to get face-deep into the movement:

  • Move for mental health: Move 60km over the month for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour.
  • Mo Your Own Way: Get creative and devise your own challenge.
  • Host a Mo-ment: Create a Movember event to help raise funds and awareness for the cause.
  • Lead your team's campaign as Movember Team Captain or create a Movember planning committee.

How can women get involved?

While growing a Mo is left to the guys, those who don't grow moustaches but still want to support men’s health do a lot of important work for Movember. Mo Sisters and those who love Mo's can raise funds and awareness by signing up and pledging to Move, Host or Mo Your Own Way.

Where does the money go?

Since 2003, we've built a men's health movement, funding over 1,320 projects around the world. We call it challenging the status quo – shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.

Funds raised during Movember go towards supporting innovative world-class men’s health projects in our key focus areas – mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. These projects are funded either directly by Movember or through our men’s health partners. Learn more about our impact.
