Movember for Men and Motorcycles

Me and my MC buddies are growing Mustaches, raising money and awareness for for Mo-vember the month formally known as November.

In case you are unfamiliar with Movemebr, the idea is to grow a mustache for the month of November as away of generating interest in the charity - when some one says what is that on your lip, you then get a chance to speak about men's health issues such as testicular cancer and prostate cancer… I know good stuff.

I am writing this with about 6 days of growth - not enough for anyone to quite notice so I hope you don't mind if I speak about the charity here.

I am encouraging members of the forum to take care care of themselves, in keeping with this years theme" Movember and Sons" please consider speaking with your father, or your son about looking after their health.

My Grandfather had Prostate cancer, upping my personal odds - so my interest in this charity is a tad selfish, but we are all at risk. I am also a tad selfish as my girlfriend likes "mustache rides." She is also contributing to the charity for a dollar a ride, but I digress…


The truth is, men are often known to be more indifferent towards their health when compared to the efforts of women, who proactively and publicly address their health issues in a way not traditionally seen with men. As a result, today the levels of awareness, understanding and funding for men’s health issues, like prostate cancer, lag significantly behind other causes.

Movember aims to change the face of men’s health and reverse this way of thinking by putting a fun twist on this serious issue. Using the moustache as a catalyst, we want to bring about change and give men the opportunity and confidence to talk about their health more openly.

Movember's primary objective is to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. We want everyone to know that most cancers are highly curable if caught in the early stages, therefore Movember aims to increase early detection, diagnosis and effective treatment. This will ultimately reduce the number of deaths from cancer.

If you are interested in more info or donating click below.

In good health,
Toby

Good cause but I think your statement about guys not taking very good care of themselves is the truth and we are the guys. Thanks for sharing.

I been wearing a mustache and goatee for about the past 12 years, so this Movember I have stopped shaving my head and am growing a full beard. It's also a good excuse to see exactly how much hair remains on my head.

I shaved my 80's porn mustache 20 years ago, no way it's coming back just to make some sort of awareness statement. Can I just donate cash instead?

I made 7 days without a shave... then had to go onto a Drilling Rig in the Gulf Of Mexico where H2S gas may have been present.

Have to shave to get a good seal on a gas mask.

Now I'm starting over.
