The Movember Foundation is a not-for-profit, charitable organisation that implements the Movember event each year.
Each year the ‘Movember’ event creates awareness of men's health issues. Since its inception as a formal charity in 2004, Movember has raised over $30 million (AUD) globally and is currently focussing on the awareness of prostate cancer and on changing the attitude men have about their health. (Huh... we’re not bullet proof?)
The Cancer Society of New Zealand will use the funds to research the causes, detection, diagnosis and improved treatment of prostate cancer. They will also raise community awareness of issues affecting men's health and provide support services for those affected with cancer.
So... in November think Movember...
