Movember09. 11. 2022
This month at Yogi, we have decided to raise awareness for the charity Movember, increasing knowledge and education on prostate cancer and testicular cancer in men. The charity has become increasingly popular over the years, with the campaign aiming to help raise money for these cancers, as well as a growing awareness and understanding of men's mental health.
To participate in the Movember project, individuals do a variety of events and challenges to raise money for this charity, the most common being, growing a moustache throughout November. This challenge aims to raise awareness and encourages men to get support for potential mental health issues as well as physical health issues that they may be suffering with.
The charity Movember have funded many men's health projects over many years, giving individuals information on prostate cancer and testicular cancer to educate them. Then, people can take the right action in preventing by having the right tests to maintain men's health.
Another area that the charity raises awareness for is men's mental health and suicide prevention. The campaigns that have been made into a variety of events across the world raise awareness and understanding of this, removing the stigma and allowing men to talk about their thoughts and feelings.
Many lives have been changed due to Movember. Many have raised funds in many different ways so to raise money for the charity. Some examples of fundraising are:

So, to help this campaign, join an event and you can help to support this charity!
