Nemera cares: Movember 2019
One man out of seven is diagnosed with prostate cancer. Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues.
What is Movember for Nemera
At Nemera, we are proud to support Movember.
For the last four years, Nemera has been participating in the Movember event through various actions (sport activities, mustache, barber, …) to raise awareness of all employees to male cancers.
As with all cancers, the practice of physical activity / sports greatly reduces the risk of contracting the disease.
In France, Nemera’s employees participated in the Beaujolais Marathon. For each registration, Nemera donated the amount corresponding to the Curie Institute.
What is Movember
Created by the Movember Foundation, this initiative began in Australia in 2003 to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer. This initiative has quickly grown into a global movement focused on men’s health.
The foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to tackling men’s health on a global scale. Since 2003, over $710 million has been raised. The movement also funded more than 1,200 men’s health projects around the world.
The foundation aims to raise awareness of men’s health issues year-round, but focuses much of its efforts every November during what they have renamed “Movember.” So, each Movember, men around the world grow a mustache to act as a “billboard” to promote and start a conversation around men’s health.
Their vision is: “To have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.”
