Movember is here!
Movember is all about raising awareness for men’s health. Men’s health is in crisis, with men dying on average six years earlier than women. About 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer throughout their lifetime, making prostate cancer the most common cancer in American men with about 180,000 new cases in 2016. Additionally, men are increasingly experiencing poor mental health with one man taking his life every minute. The Movember Foundation is focused on raising awareness for these issues currently not being spoken about, to bring consciousness and understanding to the fact that we can’t afford to stay silent any longer, that we need to take action.
Every year 18|8 Fine Men’s Salons joins in supporting The Movember Foundation in raising awareness and help spread the word and raise funds for the cause. Along with The Movember Foundation we want men to live happier, healthier and longer lives, a goal that aligns with our mission of helping our male clientele look their best, feel their best and perform their best. No-Shave November encourages men to grow a moustache from the first day of the month through the end of November to spark the conversation about men’s health concerns. At 18|8 we fully support the cause and we will be hosting several events and our King of the Stache contest in an effort to raise awareness and make a difference.
