Movember Special: Guess the Moustache

This year has flown by, and it’s already November. So this means another month of Moustache madness aka Movember!

We have The Movember Foundation to thank for some of the amazing things we can expect from this month. They’re a global charity founded in Australia, who are committed to helping men to live happier, healthier and longer lives.

The foundation has raised £402 million since starting in 2003, and now funds over 1,000 programmes. These programmes help tackle prostate and testicular cancer, poor mental health and they aim to get men more active.

Since launching over 10 years ago, the campaign is still more popular than ever, so we thought it’s time to test your moustache knowledge with our very own Movember quiz. Guess the Moustache!

Firstly, this post runs through the causes Movember is fighting, how you can get involved and finally, the quiz!

Movember raises awareness and money for some great causes, and every single event is packed with amazing people working together.

Below we’ve outlined the causes that you can help tackle this month by growing a ‘tache:

PROSTATE CANCER

The second most common type of cancer in men. Shockingly, 1 in 8 men living in the UK will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives.

Even though survival rates are at an all-time high, 84%, treatment can take a toll on the physical and mental health of patients.

TESTICULAR CANCER

Testicular cancer is one of the least common cancers. It usually affects younger men between the ages of 15 to 49.

There is a good outcome in 98% of these cases, but unfortunately there is still a small proportion of men and boys who don’t make it.

POOR MENTAL HEALTH

Male suicide rates are 3 times higher than female. With suicide being the leading cause of death for men aged 20 to 49 in England and Wales, it's great that The Movember Foundation are helping tackle this issue.

PHYSICAL INACTIVITY

This is a growing problem, not only in the UK but all over the world, causing 3.2 million deaths per year.

Exercise is a great way to improve your physical and mental health. Not only will you look and feel better, but your body will be packed with endorphins allowing you to lead happier, healthier and longer lives!

GET INVOLVED

The Movember foundation wants to work with people like you to beating all of these – one great ‘stache at a time!

With that being said, the good news is that you don’t necessarily have to grow a moustache to take part. So, ladies – you have no excuse!

Now you’re probably asking yourself…how do I take part?
