As soon as October ends, Movember begins! Movember is the month where "Mo Bros" and "Mo Sisters" come together to make a lasting difference in men's physical and mental health.
This initiative is led by the Movember Foundation, the “leading charity changing the face of men’s health.” The Movember Foundation is committed to "helping men live happier, healthier, longer lives" by "making a difference in mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer."
For the second year in a row, Cam's Kids Ambassadors and employees are creating a team of "Mo Bros" and "Mo Sisters" to raise funds and awareness for all the dads, brothers, sons, and friends in their lives.
By the end of the month, the Cam's Kids Movember team hopes to surpass our accomplishments last year by raising more than $2,515, and walking more than 395 km combined!

Let’s work together to “[help] men live happier, healthier, longer lives” this Movember and beyond.

The Foundation is famously known for changing the face of men's health by encouraging participants to grow a moustache (which the foundation calls a "Mo") for the month of November and fundraise while doing it. As their saying goes: "Patchy, lopsided, itchy or epic - Whatever you Grow will save a bro".
But growing a Mo is just one way to join this global movement.
Another meaningful way to partake is to "Make a Move", pledging to walk or run 60 km over the course of the month of November. "That’s 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world."
Walking/running not your thing? No problem.
Why not "Mo Your Own Way" - whatever that means for you. This could be taking the month to kick a bad habit, challenging yourself to a gruelling test of physical endurance, or anything in between.
However you participate, you are helping fund men's health projects around the world. By "challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men", the Movember Foundation’s ultimate goal is a 25% reduction in the number of men who die prematurely by 2030.
