In the month of November every year, the Movember community comes together to raise awareness and start conversations about men’s health. The Movember movement began in 2003 when a couple of mates were catching up over a beer and sparked the idea of growing a moustache and how it could potentially be the catalyst for important conversation about men’s health. From this day, millions of people in Australia and across the globe have grown moustaches to raise funds and awareness for men’s health.
This year Movember is celebrating its 18th year of impact. Over these 18 years, Movember has raised over 364 million dollars of fundraising in Australia for men’s health. Jake Lambert, Movember’s Community Fundraising Manager joins us to discuss Movember this year and how important the movement is in Australia and what we can do to get involved.
