The UPEI Student Union will be involved again this year in the Movember campaign. Movember’s vision is to have a lasting impact on the face of men’s health. Each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of millions of moustaches around the world. Through the power of the moustache, vital funds and awareness are raised to combat prostate and testicular cancer, and mental health challenges. Movember encourages men to join the movement by growing a moustache for the 30 days of November. Movember’s not just for “Mo Bros”. “Mo Sistas” are an important part of Movember’s success. Once registered, Mo Sistas raise funds and encourage the men in their lives to get involved. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo.
