M is for… Movember

November 02, 2020

This November, or should we say, Movember, RSK will once again be raising awareness of men’s health by inviting employees to get involved in the annual Movember challenge. And the good news is that anyone can get involved, even if you are follicly challenged in the upper lip area!

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Globally, men die, on average, six years earlier than women, and often for reasons that are largely preventable. It does not have to be that way: we can all take action to live healthier, happier and longer lives.

How to take part

Grow a Mo

  1. Start the month of November clean shaven, decide if you are going to ‘mo’ it alone or see if anyone else in your team wants to take part. The aim of Movember is to raise awareness of men’s health issues, however you take part, but, if you would like to use it as an opportunity to raise funds for the charity, you can do so by signing up here.
  2. For the entire month of Movember, grow and groom a moustache.
  3. Do not fake it. No beards, no goatees and no fake moustaches.
  4. Use the power of the moustache to start conversations about men’s health.

Get moving for Movember

Obviously, many of us may not be in the position to grow a moustache, so why not get involved in the Movember 60-km challenge instead? The aim is to walk or run 60 km during November to raise awareness of the 60 men who die from suicide across the world every hour.

Mo your own way or host a mo-ment

Other ways to get involved include hosting a mo-ment, where you can rally a crew together virtually to do something fun to raise awareness of the campaign, or mo your own way and choose your own challenge, whether it is a gruelling test of physical endurance or something else entirely.

You can also get involved by donating to this worthy cause.

Ready, set, get going or growing!

🤔 Should businesses offer free period products to staff?

We think they should!

💚 We decided to trial this at our offices, offering pads, panty liners and tampons for free. What’s more, all products on offer (and their packaging) are made from sustainable materials.

What do you think of this initiative?
