Stache Some Cash For Men's Health

The month of October may be painted pink by a large health awareness campaign, but every year since 2004, November follows with a quickly growing campaign for men's health issues. The Movember movement rallies men to make themselves literally the face of prostate and testicular cancer initiatives by growing moustaches to raise awareness and funds for those causes.


Since its humble beginnings in Melbourne, Australia, Movember has grown to become a truly global movement inspiring more than 1.9 Million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to participate with formal campaigns in over a dozen countries including the US. By growing a moustache, men will often get asked about it which serves as an opening to talk about the movement and initiate the ask for support.

This year, Well-Met is helping promote Movember events planned by the Milwaukee regional Network. Milwaukee Men participating on their own or as a team can link their efforts to the Milwaukee Network so we can show the world that Milwaukee means business when it comes to men's health.
