Movember: Changing the Face of Men’s Health. What is it? Movember is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of Men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, other male cancers and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, at Movember.com. The goal of Movember is to literally “change the face of men’s health.”
By encouraging men (which the charity refers to as “Mo Bros”) to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides getting an annual check-up, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of any family history of cancer, and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
Celebrites participating include Daniel Craig aka James Bond, Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Liam Hemsworth, Javier Bardem and Bradley Cooper.
At Reamir, we love that men’s health has taken the global spot-light as an issue and we support the men involved. Our staff is also participating. So grow out your mustaches and beards! Show us what you got. And if you need a trim or to get your facial hair or mustache cleaned up, please come by. We’d be happy to help.
