A Challenge is a group made up of different teams and individuals that could represent a company, organisation, school, sports team, community group or other.

You can be a member of multiple Challenges, e.g. your work network and/or sports team Challenge. This allows you to contribute to their total amount raised and compare fundraising, whilst still participating on your own or in a team.

We encourage all Mo Legends to grow as genuine a Mo as possible. Strictly speaking, a traditional Mo is one that:

  • Ideally doesn’t join upwards to meet your sideburns (that’s technically a beard). Preferably doesn’t join downwards across your chin (that would be a goatee).
  • If you’re a Mo Bro with a passion for another type of facial hair, we encourage you to jump on the Mo Train during Movember in the name of men’s health.
  • No Mo is created equal, so some level of variation is expected. A small complimentary growth under the bottom lip is definitely fair game.

Grab your copy of the Movember Rules.

In a quest to even the playing field, we recommend a shave-down on Movember 1st.

This allows you to start the month in the same position as your fellow Mo Bros, get competitive when the whiskers kick-in, and show your hairy progress to donors throughout the month.

If a baby face leaves you feeling uneasy, you’re welcome to shave in a Mo from existing stubble. We won’t judge.

A Mo Event is simply a local gathering of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas who know how to get creative and have a good time. Whether it’s a gold tournament, band night, or a dinner party – this Movember, get together to raise funds, make some noise, and stop men dying too young.

Got a good party in mind? After sign-up, register your event here and check out our Host page for tips and tricks to throwing a rocking Mo Event. Lastly, don’t forget to purchase promotional items through the Men's Foundation website to deck out your event space in proper Mo attire!
