Movember engages men to grow and women to support the moustache for the 30
days of November to raise funds for men's health- specifically prostate and
testicular initiatives. Once registered and clean-shaven, every Mo Bro (male
participant) grows their moustache for month, getting friends, family and
colleagues to donate to their Mo-growing efforts. During Movember, Mo Bros
become walking, talking billboards for men's health. Mo Sistas (female
participants) play an important role in the movement, from registering a team
to hosting events and raising awareness and funds for the cause.
