Ned is joining the Mo Bro's to grow a moustache for the 30 days of Movember!
Movember is a fund raising campaign aimed to increase awareness and raise money for research into men's health.
From the Movember website: The reason for the poor state of men’s health are numerous and complex and include:
Reluctance to take action when men don’t feel physical or mentally well
Men engaging in risky activities that threaten their health
Stigmas surrounding mental health
Men are less likely than women to seek help for health concerns, and also less likely to use health care services
The Movember Foundation aims to change this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue. Using the moustache as a catalyst, the idea is to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to learn and talk about their health and take action when needed.
As a global men’s health movement, the Movember Foundation has the ambition to contribute to improving the lives of men around the world. This will be achieved through programs we fund in the areas of – Awareness & Education, Living with Cancer, Research and Mental Health. We see success as moving the dial on progress towards:
Reduced mortality from prostate, testicular cancer and men’s suicide
Men living with prostate or testicular cancer being physically and mentally well
Men and boys understanding how to be mentally healthy and taking action when they experience mental health problems
Men and boys with mental health problems not being discriminated against
