Moustaches at the ready!

Leading global men’s health charity, the Movember Foundation, marked ten years of fundraising for men’s health issues in Ireland by launchding its 2018 Movember campaign.

Movember is calling on men and women in Cork to grow a moustache, host an event or move to raise much needed funds and awareness for men’s health issues.

In the past ten years, over 100,000 men and women in Ireland have loaned their upper lip or helped to raise funds for what has become the most effective men’s health initiative of a generation; making a real difference to the lives of the thousands of people affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health issues in Ireland each year.

Movember has funded over 30 prostate cancer initiatives, in partnership with the Irish Cancer Society, ranging from financial grants for patients and their families to ground-breaking research that has united the prostate cancer research community in an effort to improve outcomes and quality of life for the 1 in 7 Irish men who will get prostate cancer in their lifetime.
