Avitus Group Business Development Associate Colin Higman, based out of Bellevue, Washington, joins the Movember movement to help raise awareness about critical issues facing men. Movember is a movement where men take the month of November to grow out their moustaches to help raise awareness about prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health awareness and suicide prevention.
Avitus Group and Higman invite men nationwide to join the Movember movement by joining a team and growing out a moustache, and for anyone to raise awareness and funds for this important cause. For more information about the program, please visit Higman’s Movember fundraising page.
Movember is the only global, mens health fundraiser. The four main focuses of the fundraiser are: prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health awareness and suicide prevention. A couple of alarming stats: 3/4 of all suicides are by a male. A male takes his life every minute of every day. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer among men ages 15-34, and 1 in 4 men will be affected by prostate cancer. Movember is a movement asking men to go get their check-ups. Early detection is the best way to fight cancer. The movement also reminds ladies that there are ways they can get involved such as talking to the men in their life about their health and helping to raise awareness.
