Movember 2011 - current global tally $107 million

During November each year, men throughout Australia and the world grow moustaches to raise funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer, and depression in men.

2011 saw nearly 900,000 fundraisers register for the event from countries such as Australia, United States, Canada, United Kingdom, New Zealand, South Africa and many others.

The funds raised are intended for programs run directly by Movember and their men’s health partners, the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and beyondblue: the national depression initiative.

APCRC-Q once again took part in Movember with an online team, morning tea and multiple donations, raising over $2,000 for Movember in total.

Although Movember will not tally the final raised amounts until January, currently Australia is sitting on over $24 million in third place under Canada and the United Kingdom.

The total raised globally, currently has reached an inspiring $107 million and continues to rise.

Figures are updated each hour on the hour at Mo Money.

Congratulations to all who participated in Movember 2011!
