We moustache you a question

Did you know Movember isn’t just about growing the best, biggest and bushiest moustache?

Movember has arrived so don’t be alarmed if you start noticing some extra fuzz on the upper lips of the males around campus—it’s all for a good cause!

Since the fundraising initiative began back in 2004 Australian men have gained an annual furry friend in the form of a moustache. Over the years the month of November has continued to promote important men’s health issues specifically, prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. Some doctors now even offer free health checks for men in November.

The aim of the month is to help men live happier, healthier and longer lives. This year the Movember Foundation is encouraging men and women to Move It! Which means ladies no longer need to feel left out. If you’re passionate about men’s health you can join in the Movember fun without having to grow any facial hair at all!

But boys be warned growing, trimming and admiring your new moustaches can leave you vulnerable to procrastinating away your important November study time! On the upside those good charitable feels could also put you in the perfect studying state of mind.

Griffith’s Health Service offers a range of quality health services and information to current staff and students.
