Movember has been running since 2003, aiming to raise awareness for men’s health issues, specifically around prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. I’ve personally been participating for the last 7 years and it’s a cause I’m incredibly passionate about.
Movember raises an enormous amount of money every year ($135 million in 2020) that goes into research and education. Aside from the significant financial impacts, Movember gets the conversation going between men that would typically not be talking about their struggles with mental health or feel too embarrassed speaking with a doctor about prostate or testicular cancer.
Donations are strongly encouraged, especially to our OniMos Team - Oni will match donations! But if you want to also participate there are many ways to do so that aren’t just growing a mo, especially for the moustache-challenged Mo Bros and Mo Sistas out there.
Our OniMos team is participating for our third consecutive year, have raised over $1,200 in that time and we’re growing our ranks of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas.
