The month of November isn’t just for celebrating thanksgiving and another impending La Niña summer, it’s also for supporting men’s health and questionable facial hair! Movember is a charity with a focus on promoting, funding, and changing the face of men’s health.
“Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average 5 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. A growing number of men – around 10.8M globally – are facing life with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides. Movember is uniquely placed to address this crisis on a global scale. We fund ground-breaking projects all over the world, engaging men where they are to understand what works best and accelerate change.”
Some of our lovely Glenaeon teachers and support staff are sporting their Mo’s for the month of November to raise awareness and funds to support this fantastic organisation.
