Calling on all Bath Rugby fans! Bath Rugby in association with official supplier VitaMan will be celebrating 'Movember' in style this year with David Flatman and Danny Grewcock spearheading team VitaMo
Movember is the month formerly known as November, where men and women across the globe join together to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues - specifically prostate and testicular cancer. Men sporting Movember Mo's (supported by their Mo Sistas) in effect, become walking talking billboards for the 30 days of November raising funds and much needed awareness around the often ignored issues of men's health. In 2010, over 111,825 UK Mo Bros and Mo Sistas got on board, raising £11.7 million.
Did you Mo...?
- 1 in 9 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK – one man is diagnosed every 15 minutes
- A man will die from prostate cancer every hour - more than 10,000 men will die of the disease this year in the UK
- Occurrences of prostate cancer in men are comparable to the rates of breast cancer in women
- Testicular cancer in the UK affects men between the ages of 20 and 50. There were 1,990 men diagnosed with the disease in 2007
As the Official Grooming Supplier for Bath Rugby, VitaMan is organizing events at home games on the 5th November and 3rd December to raise awareness for Movember. Shaves and treatments will be available for Bath Rugby fans in the VitaMan marquee on both days along with tips and advice from the VitaMan team on means health issues.
