The story goes that, in 2003, two friends from Melbourne, Australia were having a beer and talking about fashion trends. The moustache, they thought, had disappeared, and they joked about bringing it back. A friend’s mother was fundraising for breast cancer, so they decided to grow mustaches to support men’s health and prostate cancer. They created some rules, called it Movember and charged 30 friends $10 Australian to grow a Mo.
Since then, Movember has gone global, and has raised millions of dollars for prostate cancer and other men’s health issues. And because men’s health is directly connected with fertility, we promote Movember and encourage everyone to grow a mustache (or support someone who can!) and raise awareness and funds to improve men’s health throughout November.
