Gentlemen around Boston College Law School are rocking the mustache to celebrate Movember and raise awareness and funds for men’s health.
The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men’s health movement, raising $650 million and funding over 1,000 programs focusing on testicular cancer, prostate cancer, poor mental health, and physical inactivity.
- Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged 15-34 in the U.S.
- Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men in the U.S.
- Around 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. will experience a mental health problem in a given year.
- Around half of American men meet the federal guidelines for physical activity.
It is important that men take the time to see a doctor, get routine medical exams, and chat about mental health issues.
Feel free to ask any one of us why we’re growing a mustache!
