The Healthy Workplace Committee is supporting Movember Canada for the month of November. The Committee encourages departments to also take part in Movember for men's health. The Movember Foundation is not only supporting projects fighting prostate and testicular cancer but also on mental health and suicide prevention

How can you help? During the month of November, commit to doing a fund raising activity to have a little fun and contribute to a good cause. To help you get started, here are a few ideas:

  • Mustache Bingo – Can’t grow a stache!  Play "Name That Stache." It is just like BINGO where every day you draw a mustache slang word until you have completed the whole card. To help raise funds, each team member contributes a $2.00 donation to play. Determine your own department prize.

  • Movember Mondays – Who can resist treats? Consider bringing a treat in on Monday’s during the month of November. Collect $2.00 donations from those who partake in the treats!

  • Breakfast Potluck - Start the day off right! With your team/co-workers put on a breakfast potluck. Collect donations for a great “breaky” to start the day.

  • Dress Down - Leave the formal wear in the closet and head to work in what makes you feel comfortable. Don’t forget to set a donation requirement for your co-workers looking to loosen their collars.

  • Jumble Sale - One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Create departmental sale with proceeds going to Movember. Dig through those closets, cupboards and shelves – who knows what treasures you will find!

  • Scavenger Hunt - Get your team together and get ready for the Campus-Wide Movember Scavenger Hunt. Teams need to register by 10 a.m. Thursday, November 15. Scavenger hunts will take place each Tuesday and Thursday from November 15-29 over the lunch hour. Clues will be sent to your team captain.

  • Still looking for more ideas? The Movember Foundation provides an A-Z Fundraising Guide (PDF).

How can you donate? Donate directly on the Movember Foundation website. You can make individual donations or create a team to collect donations.

There are many ways you can get involved! Whether challenging yourself (or your team) to raise funds or simply starting a conversation helps bring attention to men's health.
