A message from UNC Movember Headquarters

For the last three years, students, faculty and staff at UNC and UNC Health Care have participated in Movember - a global fundraising campaign committed to changing the face of men’s health. The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for men’s health programs that focus on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity. Our 2015 goal is to raise $50,000 - we hope you'll consider donating, growing, or both!
