Shenzhen’s Movember Effort Gets Ready to Kick Off
Every year around this time, an excitement builds in the community in Shenzhen. No, it’s not because of Halloween or Turkey Day, nor is it the reprieve from the summer heat with cooler weather bearing down on the city, though men causing the excitement would certainly be warmer for it. Indeed, it is something much mo exciting… Movember has come once more.
November is one month of the year where men around the world are able to sport a winning facial feature more often reserved for the likes of movie stars, Tom Selleck and WWE wrestlers, in support of prostate cancer that afflicts one out of every six men at some point in their lives.
On Movember 1st, guys register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face and then for the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and their female supporters (known as Mo Sistas) celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
Get involved in the Shenzhen Effort by joining one, or all of our groups and sporting your Mo for the month of Movember!
