Prostate cancer rates will double in the next 15 years.
Movember started in 2003 with a group of 30 men in Melbourne, who made a decision to grow moustaches for a bit of a giggle.
In 2016, Movember raised a total of $22.6 million, with almost 84 percent of those funds going to men's health programs and the rest of the money going back into campaigning.
Suddenly, 'staches were everywhere and donations were racking up to help fund programs related to prostate and testicular cancers, mental health, and suicide prevention.
Men die about six years before women on average but the charity said: We can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives..
"The Mo-Finale will be held on Thursday, November 30th at 5:30 pm at Robin Hood Restaurant & Pub". But first, get judged to win various prizes. Try the Catlin Man on the Run 5K being held on November 12 at 9 am at Warwick Academy. All the proceeds from Movember go towards men's health organisations‚ and the whole month is geared around raising awareness for testicular and prostate cancer. Women are welcome but only on the sidelines to cheer your man on as this race is for men only.
Men are encouraged to know their numbers by attending a free mens health screening.
Prefer to Move on your own?
"It's a reminder that you need to be having these conversations and it raises cash to fund research". If you don't know your numbers or have not seen a doctor in a few years Bermuda Cancer and Health Centre host a free Men's Health Screening every November.
During the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world will be rallying to raise funds and awareness for the often ignored issues surrounding men's health.
