Who is The Movember Foundation?
The Movember Foundation says they are committed to changing the face of men’s health.
They are a global organisation that originated in Melbourne in 2003.
The idea was born out of two friends joking about fashion trends and asking “Where has the Mo gone?”
That year they had 30 participants. In 2004 there were 480 and $54,000 was donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. In recent years they have had just under 1 million participants with over $100 million raised all over the world to support men’s health programs, initiatives and research.
