Movember 2012

For those of you unfamiliar with Movember, we’re here to tell you about this campaign that is (literally) changing the face of men’s health around the world.  Men worldwide start Movember, November 1st, clean shaven and then make it their goal throughout the month to grow the most impressive mustache they can.

They become walking, talking personal ads raising awareness, word-of-mouth buzz,  and money for the often ignored issue of men’s health, specifically prostate and testicular cancers.  As this movement continues to grow on a global scale, there is now mustache merchandise in many stores and mustache-themed fundraising parties. Movember participants nicknamed “Mo Bros” along with the women in their lives “Mo Sistas” have been very successful, raising $126.3 million in 2011.  It is the goal of the organization to change the attitudes that men have about their health, to increase the chances of early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of these cancers.

We tracked down some local Movember “Mo Bros” from our Ft. Lauderdale, FL fire department doing their part in the fight against prostate and testicular cancer.
