Movember is a charity that was set up in 2003, with just 30 participants growing a moustache, with the aim of raising awareness and combatting health issues that affect men and allowing them to live happier, healthier and longer lives. Movember has now grown into a global charity with over 5 million participants and has raised a staggering £443 million in just 12 years and has funded 1200+ projects in 21 countries. Movember aims to reduce the number of men dying too early by 25% by the time we get to 2030. Improving men's health is something that we at Kegel8 are also passionate about which is why this year we are helping to do our bit.

So, how do we know what we should and shouldn’t be doing? Well, there’s a definite difference between being paranoid and being vigilant. That’s why the entire month of April has been declared as annual Bowel Cancer Awareness Month; so that you have the facts.
