Further Seeks Unexpected Growth in November
17:37 on Thu, 20 Oct 2011 | 0 Comments
The men (and some women) of Further have decided to embark on the time honoured tradition of ‘Movember’. Last year over 100,000 ‘Mo Bros’ and ‘Mo Sistas’ participated in the month long event.
What is Movember you ask?
After a clean shave on the morning of the 1st of November men all over the world have 30 days to grow and create some fantastic moustaches all in the name of raising money and awareness for Testicular and Prostate Cancer. The UK alone last year raised over £10.2 million towards this all too often ‘tucked away’ issue.
A few nuggets about Testicular and Prostate Cancer:
*1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime
* This year 37,000 new cases of the disease will be diagnosed
* 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime
* 26% of men are less likely to go the doctor compared to women

During November we'll be reporting, and revealing, the moustache growth progress here on the Further site.
