Join Our Movember Challenge!

[TW: suicide]

 

We lose 60 men to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.

 

This November, we at JMSU are supporting the Movember Campaign to help raise awareness and vital funds for 3 important men’s health issues: mental health and suicide prevention, Prostate Cancer, and Testicular Cancer. We’re calling on all of you to get involved and join our challenge! It doesn’t matter if you want to get involved as an independent student or as part of a group or society, all are welcome!

 

There are four main ways you can get involved and support Movember with us:

 

Grow

Grow a moustache for the 30 days of November and encourage people to sponsor you to raise money for Movember! Already got some facial hair? Do a ‘Shavedown’ for a fresh start to kick off Movember! Share your pictures with us on @TeamLJMU and @JohnMooresSU and we’ll amplify your efforts.

 

Mo Sistas

Mo Sistas are for the women who understand the importance of men taking care of their health and want to show their support with a moustache too! The challenge is to draw on a fake moustache each day to show your solidarity and support for the campaign. Alternatively, get creative with your ‘stache! See what you can find around the house, make a crafty moustache and tag is in your pictures at @TeamLJMU & @JohnMooresSU

 

Move

Move this Movember by running or walking 60km over the month. That’s 60km for the 60 men that take their life every hour across the world. Take part in the challenge and raise money along the way. Want to swim or bike or move in some other way instead? That’s great! Get moving, raise some money and support Movember!

 

Host a Virtual Mo Event

LJMU Societies & Groups, host a virtual Mo Event to raise some vital funds for Movember!

Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause. Consider a Zoom quiz, bingo or a movie night with your society and charge a small fee for the festivities, then just donate all the money you raise to our dedicated Movember page!
