It’s time to Movember… that’s what a few Scandians thought at the beginning of November. After we skipped Movember last year, also due to special circumstances, we started again this year with Team Scandio. In the following blogpost you will find out how many donations we were able to collect, how many kilometers we walked for men’s health and of course how beautiful our moustaches turned out to be.
Movember? What is that actually?
Men’s health is in a crisis….
Crisis? Isn’t that a bit too much? Prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention are the movement’s elemental themes, and since 2003 Movember has funded more than 1250 men’s health projects around the world. The focus is on challenging the status quo, advancing men’s health research, and changing the way men cope with such issues.
- The Foundation promises: “By 2030, we will reduce the number of men who die prematurely by 25%.”

2019 has not only been a lot of fun for us, but it has also raised a tidy sum. But what are the possibilities to participate?
It is clear that everyone has the opportunity to contribute. Movember does not only consist of men who grow a moustache because there is also the possibility to contribute through movement. As a participant, you are free to choose what you want to do.

At this point I would like to thank again all participants as well as all donors!
It was, as in 2019, a mixture of uncertainty, fear (small fun fact: There were probably some discussions with their spouses in advance) and ultimately - of course - a lot of fun! We hope to be back next year with a Team Scandio and are already looking forward to it. Mo`on!
