Welcome to the Movember Team Uno website, where we are changing the face of men’s health by proudly supporting the Movember Foundation. The purpose of the foundation is to raise awareness and funds for cancers that affect men by gaining attention through growing moustaches through the month of November. Stay connected to our team and keep up to date on our upcoming events.

Shave the Date!

Shave the Date! Start this Movember out right with a manly shave and cold beer. Harken back to a simpler time when men gathered at the local barbershop to discuss the goings on around town. Join Movember Phoenix at V’s Barbershop at Centerpoint in Downtown Phoenix (1 E. Washington Street, Suite 270) on Movember 1st from 5-7 PM. For a tax-deductible donation of $50+ to Movember, men will receive a nostalgic shave, a craft beer, and a voucher for a discount on a future visit to V’s. Movember Phoenix will also be registering Mo Bros and Mo Sistas for Movember Online so they can be kept in the loop for all upcoming Movember Phoenix events. Can’t make it there after 5? That’s okay! V’s will also donate 10% of its proceeds from before 5 to Movember!

Appointments are limited, so call V’s Barbershop at (602) 466-1888 and book yours today!

World Mental Health Day

Mental health and well-being is equally important to physical well-being. It is now well documented that the two are linked and many of the things that help with our physical health (e.g. physical activity/exercise) also improve our mental health.

Mental health problems in men can often go undetected or untreated. The reasons for this are numerous and complex but can often be attributed to a lack of awareness that there is a problem in the first place.  Men may not be able to recognize or confidently articulate the signs and symptoms they experience. There is additional pressure due to associated stigmas (shame and embarrassment) preventing them from taking action and accessing mental health services.  Some men may act out with risk taking behavior to numb or avoid the problems they face. To many men, being “manly” means not admitting vulnerability or expressing emotions. However, men are not alone in what they are experiencing, the information below shows that men’s mental health problems should not be ignored: http://us.movember.com/mens-health/mental-health

KNOW WHY YOU GROW THE MO

Please do not confuse Movember with no shave November or any other facial-hair growing contest!

At Movember, we stand behind the moustache and we stand for change. Our vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health; we are achieving this through the power of the moustache. Let’s not confuse the Movember Foundation with No Shave November or any other facial hair-growing contest.

We appreciate all efforts that raise awareness and funds for cancer, and are honored if others are inspired by Movember to create other facial hair initiatives. The Movember Foundation is focused on changing the face of men’s health, providing funding for three causes- prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. Meaningful strides have been taken toward achieving our goals, but there is more work to be done.

  • 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
  • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men aged 15-35 years
  • 79% of all suicides in the US are men

Together, we can change these statistics.

We say no to beards, no to goatees – as the official rules of Movember state, we are only about the moustache. Why only the Mo? The growth of a new moustache sparks conversations – conversations about Movember that lead to awareness and educate people on the health issues men face.  A beard or a goatee doesn’t have that kind of power. Awareness and education then prompts people to take action and change their behavior, which is impacting and saving lives today. During Movember, each moustache generates more than 2,400 conversations about men’s health. Through the power of the moustache:

  • 75% of participants were more aware of the health risks they face
  • 62% made an appointment with a medical professional to improve their health
  • 50% encouraged someone else to take action to improve their health

Since 2003, when Movember began, over 4 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas in 21 countries have raised $550 million for men’s health, funding more than 800 programs globally in the areas of men’s health, prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. If you want to join the truly global movement focused on having an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health, sign up for Movember.

The moustache maketh the man.
