2,209 men in the UK were diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2009
Movember is an annual campaign devised by some Aussie blokes in a pub back in 2003 to raise awareness for often ignored menâ€™s health issues. Why is it that the best ideas come after a beer or three? The campaign is growing in momentum year after year with more and more people taking part. Last year over Â£22 million was raised in the UK. Thatâ€™s a very impressive amount and it all goes to very worthwhile causes.
At the start of November men around the world grow a mo to raise money for menâ€™s health charities. And that includes some of our brave team members at Sleeping Giant. Take a look at these Giants rocking their mo’s! (This is one of those times that Iâ€™m glad Iâ€™m a girl!)
Now you wouldn’t want to bump into these guys in a dark alley would you? Only joking but theyâ€™re getting funny looks in the supermarket, double takes at the train station and their wives/girlfriends wonâ€™t come anywhere near them! Donâ€™t let their embarrassment and discomfort be in vain. View our team page on the Movember site and get donating!
P.S. Does Lukeâ€™s mo remind you of anyone?!
*** UPDATE 30th NOVEMBER***
So it’s been 30 whole days and we’ve actually been getting used to looking at the guys mo’s but they are definitely ready to get rid. We just had to show you one last photo…
