Movember is nearly here again and the moustache-growing extravaganza through November, in aid of men’s health, is well worth checking out.
Cricketers and cricket clubs can support the charity that funds groundbreaking work on mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.
Discover more below – including new ways you can support without growing a mo.
Once registered at movember.com each Mo Bro must begin the 1st of Movember with a clean-shaven face.
For the entire month of Movember, each Mo Bro must grow and groom a moustache.
Don’t fake it. No beards, no goatees and no fake moustaches.
Use the power of the moustache to create conversation and raise funds for men’s health.
Each Mo Bro must conduct himself like a true gentleman.
I don’t want to grow a facial caterpillar – can I still take part?
Absolutely. You can donate, support someone’s else Movember campaign or do one of the other Movember initiatives:
Move for Movember
Run or walk 60km over the month at your own pace. That 60km represents the 60 men lost to suicide every hour across the world.
Host a Mo-ment
Rally a crew and do something fun and easy. Hosting is just about enjoying yourselves for a fantastic cause.
Mo your own way
If nothing else appeals then freestyle and come up with your own Movember challenge. Whatever you like, get creative, perhaps with a cricketing theme?
Why those involved in cricket might want to give it a go
It’s vital fundraising that makes a difference for men’s health.
By 2030, the Movember Foundation aims to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%. It doesn’t get more important than saving lives.
It’s a talking point and a way to keep connected with members, cricket clubs and leagues.
This is a quiet time of year, most aren’t netting until after Christmas and the UK outdoor season has come and gone.
Decide your Movember challenge, register and get conversations started.
Set up fundraising teams and see who can top the charts, compete against other clubs or how about a Movember League XI against another league?
