Movember is Back!

It’s that time of year again! The time when UNEX employees grow creepy mustaches to benefit men’s health programs through the event known as Movember.

The Movember Foundation’s mission is simple: to improve the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health issues. Through funds raised during Movember, the Movember Foundation has created 800 programs in 21 different countries where awareness and treatment of such ailments is often inadequate.

Taking part in Movember is quite simple. On November 1st, we celebrate “Shave The Date” by shaving down to our baby faces. Then, we let the mos grow to show our support. We also raise money through the Movember website- last year we raised over a thousand dollars!

If you’d like to participate, you can donate to our team through the Movember site. You can also check out our Facebook and Google+ pages each week to check in on the progress we’ve made growing our mo’s.

UNEX isn’t the only one hoping to change the face of men’s health. Our friends over at AK Material Handling are also getting in on the Movember fun. You can find their Movember donation page here.

We look forward to changing the face of men’s health- with your help!
