About Us

What Is Movember?

Movember is an international non-profit focused on tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health advocacy and suicide prevention. Starting in Australia in 2003, the Movember Foundation has since raised millions of dollars to support thousands of men’s health initiatives. Every November, people across the globe grow mustaches, raise funds, and host and attend events to bring awareness and support to some of the most pertinent health issues men face.

Cal Poly students, faculty, and staff have participated in Movember since 2011, and we hope to continue the legacy of supporting men’s health through our annual Movember Campaign
