Movember launches MOVE to get men to be more active

Movember has introduced MOVE. This is a 30-day fitness challenge to raise funds and awareness about men’s health. MOVE hopes to target the ‘rising levels of inactivity in men’.

Singaporeans are encouraged to move and can choose their own activities ranging from a one-day workout, gathering friends for a game of football or an round-the-island bicycle ride. MOVE is about being active as well as rallying friends and family to champion awareness and action about men’s health.

The beauty about MOVE is that there is no prescribed way to move – this is not about sharing a fitness exercise routine or to sign up at a gym. In fact, this is not only limited to men. Women that wish to support Movember and their ‘Mo Bros’ (moustache-d brothers) can do so and are affectionately termed ‘Mo Sistas’. Movember will always be focused around the moustache and challenging Mo Bros to grow and Mo Sistas to support these hairy efforts. With MOVE, everyone can be an active champion of men’s health.

Mo Bros and Mo Sistas can look forward to special perks and exclusive invites to Movember events including Moga Bootcamp by Yoga Collective, The Movember Morning Rave at Club Kyo and several Mo fitness circuits with Movember’s MOVE partners in Singapore.

Into its fourth year in Singapore, Movember is an annual month-long charity initiative that encourages men to grow a Mo (slang for moustache) and raise awareness about men’s health issues such as prostate cancer and poor mental health.

In 2014, more than 3,500 people in Singapore took part, raising over S$700,000 to fund local men’s health programmes overseen by health partner Singapore Cancer Society (SCS). For 2015, the funds raised in Singapore support the SCS and are distributed directly to the areas of awareness and education, survivorship, research and health aid for men living with prostate cancer.

For Mo Bros and Mo Sistas looking to participate, more information is available on the Movember Singapore website.
