UCCSU is delighted to be supporting the Movember 2020 campaign.
Movember is a movement that seeks to promote awareness on three major men’s health issues – Mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer
Since 2003, Movember has funded more than 1,250 men’s health projects around the world, challenging the status quo, shaking up men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.
The ultimate goal of Movember is to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25% by 2030.
UCCSU are getting involved in Movember with three of our officers growing out their dodgy staches. We’re also launching our Mens Sheds initiative which will provide a space for like-minded men to come together and socialise safely each week.
UCC Movember is the one stop page for all the Movember events and fundraising efforts taking place. Here you can find leaderboards of the highest fundraisers, weekly roundups of Movember events and lots more!
