November 1st marked the start of Métis Nation BC’s 2020 Movember campaign called “Let’s Talk Movember.”
Movember is a worldwide annual health campaign that raises awareness for men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men’s mental health through encouraging participants to grow moustaches for the month of November. Movember is working to “change the face of men’s health.”
So why is Movember important to women? Women tend to be the gateway to health in a man’s life – whether they’re a mother or daughter, wife, girlfriend or pal. Women lead by example, and it’s the women’s health movement that Movember is emulating. Studies have shown that men are less likely to talk about their health, let alone act. Women play an important role in helping men break down the barriers that surround those simple health conversations and can be the catalyst in getting men to take action and stay active during the month.
We’ve launched our annual Moust-sash competition! November 1st, we encouraged you all to start growing your ‘stash. But don’t worry, if you’re not as fortunate as others to be able grow a Moust-sash, you can still participate! Below are some other ways to join in on our campaign:
