Keele SU's Movember Campaign

November at KeeleSU is the start of our Movember campaign which aims to raise awareness, reduce the stigma and start conversations to address men's health. 

Every year we get behind Movember to raise funds to tackle some of the biggest issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and poor mental health.

Our Movember campaign is focused on raising awareness and funds through fundraising events and the infamous SU Mo Team. The team is made up of Full-Time Officers, SU staff and students.

Anyone can join in, just sign up to our Mo Space!

 

The National Campaign

From humble beginnings in Australia in 2003, the Movember movement has grown to be a truly global one, inspiring support from over 5 million supporters around the world.

 

How Can I sign up to fundraise? 

  • Google Movember. uk.movember.com 
  • Sign up via Facebook or email.
  • Set your goals and upload a picture.
  • Join a team or create one for your club/society. 
  • Join the Keele SU challenge. 
  • Set up a Facebook fundraiser through the Movember website.  

 

What can I do to fundraise? 

  1. Grow a mo: your moustache can inspire donations, conversations and real change.  
    a. Sign up and choose to grow this Movember
    b. Start growing your moustache, it will take the spotlight and initiate conversations
    c. Make it count by asking friends and family to back your Mo. 

  2.  Move for Movember: get running or walking 60km over the month. That is 60km for 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.  You don’t need to be an amazing athlete, just taking part and raising donations for doing it will make a difference.  

  3. Get hosting: get everyone together and raise essential funds for men’s health. It doesn’t matter what you do whilst you’re together. Here are some ideas to inspire you: cooking a lovely dinner, setting up a sports match, a party or even a ‘Shave Down’-a group shave off of facial hair to get started. 

The Movember Foundation are funding ground-breaking programmes all over the world, engaging with men where they are, to understand what works best, to help make change happen sooner.
