Support men’s health: join Team Anasto-Mo-SUSS for Movember!

This November SUSS is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for men’s health. The Movember campaign focuses on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health, and physical activity.

You can get involved in November in three ways:
1. Grow a Mo
2. Move in Movember: we are particularly excited about this new option – it’s a pledge to do some form of exercise every day in November. Try it out in instead of growing a Mo, or do both!
3. Support your Mo-Mates – see below for how to donate to the team.

It’s an easy way to support a good cause while you study for your exams. You can grow a Mo while you summarise lectures, and then take a Move in Movember study break and walk outside for 15 minutes!

To get started, visit the Team Anasto-Mo-SUSS page. Click on ‘Join This Team’ to participate, or click on ‘Donate to Team’ to support your friends and colleagues.

It’s a Mo-brainer!
