Ideas into Mo-tion The idea?

Begin clean-shaven on 1 November and let your mo grow for the entire month of Movember raising money along the way through sponsorship from friends, family and workmates. The cash raised by the efforts of mo-growers around the world helps to fund research into men's health issues, particularly into prostate cancer.

The Mo-tive

For 20 years, we've familiarised the red and pink ribbons with Aids/HIV and breast cancer awareness respectively. Now thanks to Movember, we can associate the hairy facial ribbon - the moustache - with men's health and in particular prostate cancer, the most diagnosed male cancer in western society.

Movember events

The gradual appearance of more moustaches on the Amsterdam streets is a sure sign that Movember is in full swing. Throughout the month a number of activities will take place where you can show off your progress and raise more money for the cause.

Movember reaches its traditional climax at the unmissable Gala ‘Parté’ at the end of the month, featuring tunes, art, cocktails and of course the chance to see participants shine in the Man of Movember competition!
