Hi EC Vancouver students! Have you heard about ‘Movember’?
“Movember” is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer and other diseases, including mental illness in men. This charity event is run by “The Movember Foundation”, a non-governmental organization (NGO). It aims to change ways of thinking about men’s health issues which have been characterized by a being lack of awareness and understanding.
Movember started by two men in Melbourne, Australia in 2003 with only 30 participants who wanted to bring back a past fashion trend – the moustache. After that, it changed into a charitable event and globally spread in a short period.
EC Vancouver is going to have Movember campaign. You can check and learn more about Movember on the official website (http://ca.movember.com) and join “EC Vancouver”.
