Through our KJH Cares program, we regularly commit time, talent and treasure to charitable organizations in the communities where we live, work and play
KJH Cares is proud to donate to the organization Movember in honour of men’s health awareness month, otherwise known as Movember.
Every November, men across the world participate in the movement by growing mustaches to raise awareness of men’s physical health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer, and men’s mental health, such as suicide prevention. According to research conducted by Movember, men are dying on average 4.5 years earlier than women; 10.8 million men globally have prostate cancer; testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men; and across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides. These devastating statistics are creating an urgent need for change.
Movember is one such organization trying to help men live happier, healthier, and longer lives by establishing a global network of experts to share research and accelerate progress towards achieving better health for men. Since 2003, the organization has funded 1,250 men’s health projects focused on men’s health research and transforming the way health services reach and support men.
