Movember, the month formerly known as ‘November’, launches its 2014 campaign to Mo Bros and Mo Sistas in the world of finance, encouraging men to shave off that stubble and sprout a moustache for the month to raise awareness and funds for men’s health.
Ace faces from the world of finance, banking and insurance are primed to go head-to-head in the Movember Financial Challenge this year in the hope of challenging current champions Jupiter for the crown!

Last year saw an the financial community become walking, talking billboards, helping to generate awareness and raise vital funds as men wore Movember’s hairy ribbon, the Moustache for 30 days.
Whether it’s a Tom Selleck tuft or a Hulk Hogan handlebar, Mo Bros are encouraged to sign up at movember.com and get growing, with the support of their Mo Sistas. On average, the Movember campaign created 1.7 billion conversations around men’s health worldwide in 2013 with this year set to be even bigger.
“Our vision is to have an everlasting impact on men’s health, and the Movember moustache puts a fun twist on this serious issue. We encourage Mo Bros and Mo Sistas to sign up at Movember.com, grow and support awesome moustaches, and raise crucial awareness and funds to address the most pressing issues in prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s mental health,” said Sarah Coghlan, UK Country Director for Movember. “We look forward to seeing Mo Bros and Mo Sistas in the finance community getting involved, and making it the hairiest Movember yet!”
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health. We achieve this by challenging men to grow moustaches during Movember (the month formerly known as November) to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
Since Movember’s humble beginnings in 2003 in Melbourne, Australia when 30 men grew moustaches, Movember has become a truly global movement, inspiring more than 4 million men and women to participate across 21 countries. The Movember community has raised over £345 million, and has funded more than 800 programmes to date. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
Men and women sign up at Movember.com to grow or support the moustache. Men start November 1st clean-shaven and grow their moustache for 30 days, getting friends, family and colleagues to donate to their moustache- growing efforts.
Movember’s not just for men. Women who support men’s health, known as Mo Sistas, are an important part of Movember’s success. They get involved in the same way as men, except they don’t need to grow a moustache. They sign up at Movember.com, start a team, recruit the men in their lives to participate, donate, fundraise, plan and participate in events. Most importantly they rally the men they know to join the movement, grow moustaches and have important conversations about men’s health.
