Cobalt Business Park in North Tyneside are asking their 14,000+ workforce to join the Mo Cobalt team to raise awareness and funds for men’s health this Movember.
Movember is a month-long campaign organised by the Movember Foundation to raise funds and awareness for men’s health. It happens in the month formerly known as November. Each year they encourage men to grow and groom moustaches. That simple change in behaviour generates awareness and funds for men’s health. The Movember Foundation is the global charity raising funds and awareness for men’s health.
Since 2003, they have encouraged millions of men and women to join the global men’s health movement. Through the moustaches grown, the connections created, and the conversations generated, raising over £400 million and helped fund over 1,000 breakthrough men’s health programmes across 21 countries. We aim to have an everlasting impact on men’s health.
When it comes to their health, too many men don’t talk, don’t take action and die too young. Movermber aims to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives.
