Grow a Mo for Movember and win! October 2018

Australia is synonymous with rugby, cricket and men’s men. It’s no wonder that the global phenomenon known as Movember has its roots in Australia. It was initially just a drunken challenge between a couple of guys who wanted to see a revival of moustaches in the outback, but the challenge extended to 30 guys who set out to grow the best one in the one month of November 2003.

The idea drew so much attention though, that come the following November many more joined in the fray, but it was decided to get sponsors to support some good causes. As men invariably don’t care much about their health issues and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) badly needed support, they became the first beneficiaries of the now charitable initiative.

The men had learned that one in every six men would get prostate cancer during his lifetime - one in 36 would die from the disease and behind lung cancer, prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men. By the end of the 2nd Movember, the PCFA had benefitted to the tune of 55,000 Aussie dollars the largest donation they had ever received.

The idea spread globally, many more men’s health issue causes were targeted and Movember, as we know it today, is a worldwide phenomenon and a great fundraiser.
