Richie McCaw is captain of the New Zealand +All Blacks and a Mo Bro from way back. We grabbed some time in his busy schedule to chat rugby, mates and growing a traditional slug on your top lip.

To mark the beginning of International Men’s Health Week, we’re launching a podcast, Movember Radio. We’re lifting the lid on the often damaging ideals about masculinity upheld by our society. You’ll hear stories from men around the world who share poignant, empowering and often hilarious tales of the experiences, people and decisions that have shaped their lives. Real men talking about real issues. Tune in!
#InternationalMensHealthWeek   #Movember  
Movember, the month formerly known as November, is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men's health.

“Fun is our Trojan Horse”. Our Co-founder JC took to the stage at the recent TEDxClapham session in London to talk about how the ‪#‎Movember‬ Foundation is engaging men in their health by making the conversation fun rather than serious. Find out more about how an unconventional approach to serious issues can help disrupt the status quo in this critical area.

We're getting one step closer to a world where no man dies of testicular cancer.

A major research study, conducted by Dr. Clare Turnball and her team at the Institute of Cancer Research in London,  has uncovered several new genetic mutations that could drive the development of testicular cancers in men – and also, very critically, it has identified a gene which may contribute to some tumours becoming resistant to current treatments. This will help lead to new options for men whose testicular cancer progresses in spite of the best available treatments.

This discovery was made possible thanks to your Mo, passion and support. Find out more about how the Movember Foundation is changing the face of testicular cancer research: http://bit.ly/MovFindings

Robin Horsfall tells #Movember  Radio about his journey from entering the British Army at 15 years old to being accepted into the Special Air Service (SAS) at age 21, and the impact the military had on all aspects of his life. Robin was part of the team who took part in the historic SAS counter-terrorism raid that ended the Iranian Embassy siege in London in 1980.

CEO and co-founder Adam Garone shares his views on masculinity and the health issues it can pose.
"We know that men tend to compare themselves against a masculine ideal which values power, strength, control and invincibility. This is something that is played out across multiple touch points in a man’s life..Throughout their lives, society teaches our boys that they need to act tough, show strength and, effectively, be invincible. 
Unfortunately, the popular notion of what it is to be a man today can have a devastating effect on an individual’s mental health and well-being."
Currently, a narrow and restricted definition of ‘what it means to be a man’ is presented and reinforced to men and boys by society. This is having a direct and harmful impact on men’s mental health and risk of suicide.

An era came to close with the series finale of Mad Men. 1960s Don Draper shines a light on many struggles men still face today. Our CEO and co-founder, +Adam Garone, takes and look at what modern men can learn from this iconic character.
Disclaimer: I’m a fan of Mad Men. I can relate to some of the struggles of Don Draper. I’m not a physician. I’m not a psychologist. I’m the co-founder of the Movember Foundation. I’ve dedicated the last 12 years of my life to improving men’s health. The Movember Foundation’s goal is that men live happier, healthier, longer lives. Don Draper is the ultimate 1960s ad man from AMC’s Mad Men, which came to end today.  Don is a man with perfect style...

Today on #WorldHealthDay, the #Movember Foundation wants you to stay healthy by staying connected with friends. We’ve all got a mate we haven’t seen for a few months, because work, family or life simply takes over – but a study we recently funded shows that men who lose touch with friends have an increased risk of mental illness, even suicide. Movember is all about friends getting together, having fun and creating conversations that change the face of men’s health. It only takes a minute to reach out to a friend - tag someone you are thinking about or share this post. Who knows, you just might change a life today.

On  #WorldCancerDay  a world where no man dies from prostate cancer is getting closer thanks to you. Your funds and support allow the #Movember  Foundation to work year-round finding cures and creating better treatments to improve the quality of life for men living with cancer. 

Our recent prostate cancer breakthrough is truly changing the course of prostate cancer and on ‪#‎WorldCancerDay‬ we’d like to thank every one of you involved in making #Movember funded research programs like this happen: http://bit.ly/MovBreakthroughs

Changing the Face of Men’s Health
Introduction

The Movember Foundation is the leading global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health

The Movember community has raised over $550 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries.  This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.

The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won't stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.

This is the official G+ for The Movember Foundation
