Movember focuses on three important men’s health issues: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Men are dying on average 6 years earlier than women and from largely preventable reasons. Movember is on a mission to change this. They raise much-needed funds and awareness to stop us, our brothers, fathers, sons, partners, and friends from dying too young.
Movember is helping to transform how men think about their health – and how to act on it. Using funds raised by Mo Bros, they collaborate with the world’s sharpest minds and best researchers to create effective treatments, innovative support solutions, and easily accessible resources for men.
As a mens’ organization, men’s health is of major importance to SAE. Three out of four suicides are men. One in nine men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. And testicular cancer is the most common cancer in young men. Movember is doing important work to educate us and support research on these critical issues. Together, we can make a difference to all brothers, our campus communities, and beyond.
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up research and motivating men to take action for their health. While many chapters have been partnering with Movember for years, Sigma Alpha Epsilon launched our official partnership with Movember in July 2021.
