Move More: Movember Challenge
Put one foot in front of the other to raise funds for men’s health. Move this Movember by running or walking 60 kilometres over the month of November. That’s 60 kilometres for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour.
You don’t have to be an ultra-athlete, or own the latest kicks. Move is simpler than that.
Hit it fast. Take it slow. Run solo. Join a team. Go outside. Or jump on the treadmill.
Call on friends and family to back you with a donation, and then chip away, your way. You can stop men dying too young.
Everyone is invited to participate!
Make your move in 3 simple steps:
- Sign up at Movember.com – choose the Carleton University team!
- Accept your 60km challenge – track your kms online
- Make it count – raise much-needed awareness (and funds, if you choose) for men’s health
** Everyone who signs up and joins the Carleton University team will be entered to win a $50 Visa prepaid gift card!
About the Movember Foundation
The Movember Foundation is the leading charity changing the face of men’s health. They’re addressing some of the biggest health issues faced by men: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.
They know what works for men, and how to find and fund the most innovative research to have both a global and local impact. They continuously challenge the status quo, and invest quickly in what works. In 15 years they’ve funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
By 2030 they’ll reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
