Movember is officially the month to grow a mo with the movement taking over Bunbury this month. 

Last year, nearly 100 people across Bunbury raised more than $16,000 to help stop men dying too young.

Movember Foundation Australia Country Director Rachel Carr said being part of Movember was about raising the volume on men’s health.

“I’ve seen men in my life go through really tough times and heard first-hand the impact that men’s health issues such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and suicide have on Aussie men,” she said. 

During Movember, men are encouraged to grow a moustache for the month and get their friends, family and colleagues to donate to the effort.

Spokesperson Kieran Ryan said it was all about raising funds and awareness for mens health. 

“It’s amazing to see a community like Bunbury come together and not only raise so much but it’s also the conversations that Movember enables people to have and that’s what we really love,” he said.
