Event:
Have you always wanted to grow a moustache and fight against cancer?

Movember is the opportunity you've been looking for to express yourself in facial hair and contribute to funds and awareness for men's health.

Grow a moustache or support a Mo Bros for Movember.

Movember formally known as November, is where participants register online with a clean shaven face at the beginning of the month and grow a mo until the last day of November to raise funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

According to the Movember website: "A little bit of hair can say so much about a man."

You can recreate the look of Magnum PI or Merv Hughes whilst seeking out sponsorship or you can support a man in your life as a Mo Sistas.

According to the website: "Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, 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."

Funds raised are committed to research, education, support, and awareness with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia,beyondblue and the Movember Foundation.

Check out the Facebook page to share your daily mo growth with your friends.

Celebrate the end of Movember by attending one of the official Movember Gala PartÚs or host your own Mo Party.

I was in Kirribilli last night having dinner with a friend and we kept seeing all these people wearing crazy costumes walk past. After dinner we followed some of them down to Luna Park and it turned out it was the Movember party. It looked like soo much fun! I definitely want to try and get tickets next year!!! We ran into some bull fighters on the way back who told us that tickets were only $33. Not sure what that included (if anything after entry) or how you get them (like if you need to be signed up for Movember or something...?) but I think it'd definitely be worth it.
