Movember are the only charity tackling men's health on a global scale, year round. Using their international platform, they raise awareness around some of the biggest health issues that men can face: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
Since their formation in 2003, Movember has grown a lot, inspiring support from over 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas year in, year out. Thanks to these incredible people, Movember have been able to fund more than 1,200 projects saving and improving lives of men all around the world.
Interested in finding out more? We'll be signposting you to how you can get involved over Movember 2022. Alternatively, you can check out the official Movember website!
Similar to uea(su), Movember have their own set of principals that they apply to everything they do in the name of men's health.
Make sure to have a good time while you're out raising awareness.
Be caring and inclusive with your fundraising.
You should never forget why you're making a difference.
Considering raising money this Movember? We'd love to see you be an example of these same values!
In partnership with UEA, we will be putting on a full array of events over the course of Movember 2022 - keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook to keep updated, as well as those of any club or society you're in!
At UEA the Sportspark and sports teams get behind Movember and push the charity to raise both awareness and funds. Evie, your Activities and Opportunities Officer, is working with James and Tom to support their work with Movember and provide as many activities as they can to really get you "mo-ving".
As part of their initiative, this triumphant trio are trying to drive the conversation and raise awareness of men’s mental health at UEA. They will be working to engage and support groups who feel that they might not be able to engage with Movember, whether due to gender or not being able to grow a tache! However, everybody has a man in their life; father, partner, sibling, friend, colleague etc – so have the conversation for them.
If you have any suggestions for events that you would like to see from us, or any questions about how to get involved, let us know!
Some of the activities in this year's line-up are...
As always, for full details on our entire events programme, check out the Events and Do Something Different pages.
There are plenty of ways to take part in Movember, which means you don't only have to grow a moustache to show your support!
No matter how you choose to fundraise, be sure to tag @uea_su in your Instagram posts so that we can share your efforts!
As an Individual
Visit this link to set up your own profile on the Movember page and start raising money for the cause. You can do this in a number of ways – from "growing a mo" to sports activities and beyond, more details are available on the official Movember website.
As a Team
Once you have created an individual account you can join a team (see left hand button in your ‘mo space’) so you can work together to raise money for Movember, for example as a club or society - this is a great way to see how much your specific team has raised.
Once you have set up a team you can then join the overall UEA challenge and see how much we are raising as a University. It also is there to create a little bit of friendly rivalry between teams. To join the UEA challenge click the arrow on the top tab of your mo space and then click on challenges – then search University of East Anglia and click to join this challenge. This is really important as it enables us to boost how much we raise as a University if everyone joins the challenge and hopefully achieve the £35,000 target.
It's a classic look - suave, sophisticated... Sometimes. At least you'll turn a few heads? Who knows, you might even like it!
Patchy, lopsided, itchy or epic – whatever Mo you grow this Movember, your face will raise funds and awareness for men’s health.
Fancy yourself a runner? Whether you're Usain Bolt, a part-time dabbler with the tracks or just want to take a walk - you can do it your way and collect funds for an amazing cause!
Run or walk 60km over the month. That’s 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.
Are you the Come Dine With Me host of your friend group? The host(/-ess) with the most(/-ess)? Show us what you've got!
Rally a crew and do something fun and easy, virtual or in person. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause.
That all sounds like a lot of effort, right? Just want to use the skills that make you uniquely you to fundraise for Movember?
Whether it’s a gruelling test of physical endurance or some other wildcard idea. Whether it’s a day, over several weeks or across the year – take whatever Mo Your Own Way means to you and run with it.
