COMMITTED TO MEN’S HEALTH

Movember (the month formerly known as November) is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health.

At the start of Movember guys register with a clean shaven face. The Movember participants, known as Mo Bros, have the remainder of the month to grow and groom their Mo, raising money along the way to benefit men’s health – specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

Funds are committed to our men’s health partners – the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, beyondblue: the national depression initiative and the Movember Foundation. Together, the three channels work to ensure that Movember funds are supporting a broad range of innovative, world class programs in the fields of research, education, support, and awareness.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Funds raised through the Movember Australian campaign go to The Movember Foundation (ABN 48 894 537 905) which is a national, not for profit, charitable organisation.

The net funds are committed to programs supporting prostate cancer and male depression initiatives run by Movember and through our men’s health partners beyondblue: the national depression initiative and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, beyond blue and Movember together ensure that funded programs are world-class and align with our strategic goals

Firies, our family, and friends are joining our team this year. Feel free to get friends and other firies (from any service) to join up any time through the month, right up until the end. The more the better. Our team has won the ‘Triple 0 Australian Movember Challenge’ at least 2 years in a row, so we’re trying to beat the other firies/cops/ambos/RFS teams from across Australia gain.
