Movember was launched in Australia in 2003 as a fun way to raise funds and awareness for men’s health issues, including prostate and testicular cancer. Today, millions of men around the world start November 1 with a clean shave and grow moustaches for 30 days while they raise funds for men’s health-related charities through the Movember Foundation.
