The RGBSI team is hosting its 3rd annual employee Movember fundraiser for men’s health awareness with a Move for Movember Challenge. In 2020, RGBSI proudly donated $2,500 to the leading charity Movember to support groundbreaking health projects all over the world that change the face of men’s health and save lives.
To transform the way health services, reach and support men, RGBSI will donate $100 for each employee that completes 60 miles of physical activity in the month of November. In addition, RGBSI will donate $50 for each employee that participates in the challenge. All funds will be donated to the Movember organization to support projects across the three biggest health issues faced by men: mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer. Working together, we can help men live happier, healthier, and longer lives.
The men’s health crisis is real. Men die on an average of 5 years earlier than women. Approximately 10.8 million men in the world have been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men on a global scale. Males account for 75% of all suicides across the world. By supporting organizations such as Movember, we can transform the state of men’s health in men acting early to change outcomes, save lives, and feel mentally and physically well.
Movember addresses the men’s health crisis by funding global projects that engage men about their health, encourages conversations, and saves lives. The organization continues to make accelerate progress by giving men the facts, changing behavior for the better, creating programs that work for men, and uniting experts. One Mo can help change the face of men’s health through the powerful conversations created globally during “Movember”.
