Movember for Helderberg Hospice

Don’t let your upper lip be bare, grow a mo to show you care!

We are raising awareness of men’s health issues, with a particular focus on prostate and testicular cancer. Did you know that South African men have a shorter life expectancy and a higher rate of cancer diagnosis than South African women? At Helderberg Hospice approximately 60% of our male patients have prostate cancer. This cancer is more prevalent among men over the age of 40, with an increased risk after age 50. At Helderberg Hospice we would love you to help us raise funds to enable us to care for men who face the last stages of their walk with cancer.

CHALLENGE 

Stop shaving for the month!!! We challenge you to grow a moustache and/or beard during the month of November and to either dig in your own pocket for the privilege of not trimming – or to get some friends and family to sponsor your furry growth.  Ask your supporters to make a donation towards your challenge, eg, R100. Grow-a-mo until the last day of the Movember month and donate your donations to  Helderberg Hospice. And if you already have a moustache or beard, then the challenge is to shave if off and start all over again on the 1st of November.

CORPORATE TEAMS 

We encourage you to get your management team and staff involved too—this is a great team building exercise! ALL men in the Helderberg basin are invited to join in growing the most luxuriant and splendid mous-tache that you can grow during the 30 days of November.
