Movember MOVE: Mo’s on the go
 
6 November 2014 – Each year, as part of the Movember campaign, men around the world commit to signing up on www.movember.com and growing a moustache for November in the name of men’s health. A major focus of Movember is raising awareness and opening dialogues about issues that affect men as well as the promotion of the need to improve your general health.
 
As part of this awareness campaign, Movember encourages you not only to grow a Mo for 30 days, but to know the numbers that affect your health: find out about your family medical history, go for medical checks, be familiar with your body and any unusual changes, and reach out for help if you suspect something is wrong. Movember also calls for you to make a commitment to be more active over the month, incorporating exercise into your daily routine under the Movember MOVE initiative.

Men’s health issues don’t only affect men (women’s interest snippet)
 
Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on millions of men’s faces around the world and in South Africa in November each year: raising funds and awareness for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. But men’s health issues don’t only affect men – we are all affected – each one of us has a father or brother or partner or friend whose life and health deeply impacts our own.
