Back for the fourth year running, men all over Mayo are harvesting their upper lip for Movember (the month formerly known as November ), where the hair of the wild will be grown and groomed to perfection.
Mayo Mo Bros can register at Movember.com to raise awareness for men’s health. All the money raised in Ireland goes directly to the Irish Cancer Society’s initiative Action Prostate Cancer. Ireland’s Mo Community raised over €1.6 million in 2010.
Justin Coughlan, Movember Founder said: “The moustache has and continues to be a great catalyst for change and a badge of honour. Not only are awareness levels improving but the money raised is helping to fund some world class initiatives, which without the efforts of our Mo Bros and Mo Sistas would otherwise not be possible. We’ve managed to get the conversation of men’s health started and now our challenge is to keep it going. We hope that Ireland will once again get behind the cause in 2011. Movember will keep encouraging men to become more aware and actively involved in their own health, thereby increasing early detection.”
