Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent. 'THAT’S WHY WE’RE TAKING ACTION.'
Following on from our homepage introduction, Movember is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men:
In 15 years Movember has funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world and By 2030 they will reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
'We know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. We're independent of government funding, so we can challenge the status quo and invest quicker in what works. '
Ashbournes very own 'MoBro' Paul O Neil has been sharing daily updates from his campaign status to raise funds for this worthy cause and writes: 'Mental health doesn’t take breaks or give the men who suffer from it a day off , it’s a constant struggle and it is exhausting so we need to keep gaining awareness and donations. If anyone would like to start growing a mo it’s not too late ! Or if facial hair isn’t your thing you can set a movement target or event to raise awareness. '
