This year I will be taking part in Movember to raise money for a cause that means a lot to me since losing my dad to what started out as prostate cancer. Movember is an annual awareness campaign that raises funds for men’s health charity programmes, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems. During November, the Movember Foundation challenges men around the world to grow moustaches in order to ignite conversation and raise money to fund vital men’s health projects.
As outlined by the foundation, to become a ‘MoBro’ I will begin the month clean shaven and commit to growing a moustache throughout the 30 days of November. This is a fantastic and fun way of spreading the word because as well as raising funds among friends and family through sponsorships, men all over will be visually representing the charity- sparking conversation among their community about the Movember Foundation, and more importantly, about men’s health issues that are often ignored.
The Movember movement began back in 2003 in Australia, but has since inspired over 4 million people all over the globe to get involved. The Movember Foundation now runs official campaigns in over 21 countries, but receives support from MoBro’s in many other parts of the world too. So far, 4 million moustaches have been grown and £346 million has been raised, which has funded over 800 men’s health programmes that help to save and improve the live’s of men affected by these health issues.
I will be displaying my moustache among many friends and Apsynergy clients on November 8th at the France vs Fiji Rugby match in Marseilles. For anyone who would be interested in supporting me in my fundraising, you can visit my MoBro page here http://mobro.co/raphaelwulff
