All throughout November, men around the world were challenged to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues by growing a mustache (allies participated too!). Known as Movember, proceeds from the challenge, supported the fight against prostate cancer, testicular cancer, suicide, and more.

“A very good friend of mine is a cancer survivor. He was diagnosed several years ago and it was a shock to all of us. He was the type of person you look at and don’t think he can be sick—healthy, sporty, active. He never had any symptoms and it was just a lucky coincidence that he was diagnosed early. He is now cancer free and a strong advocate for regular health check-ups. As he says, ‘while some of the procedures might not sound very attractive, they might very well save your life.”

This is my second Movember and my first one with Temenos. I am a “Mo Bro” and thus growing a “Mo”…Plus, I am trying to take part in more self-care activities in November such as upping my physical activity, doing more of “shinrin-yoku” (my way of being with the environment), physically reuniting with at least one long-lost old friend, and celebrating my “Mo-hood” overall.
Competing for the honor of Mr. (or Ms.) Movember 2022 at Temenos, dozens of Temenosians got growing at the start of November. Here are some of the standout Movember entries, that were thoughtful, goofy, and everything in between.
