My motivation
Fundraising for cause areas including:
Men's health
Prostate cancer
Mental health and suicide prevention

Globally, the rate of suicide is alarmingly high, particularly in men. Too many men are ‘toughing it out’, keeping their feelings to themselves and struggling in silence. Movember is aiming to reduce the rate of male suicide by 25% by 2030, and I want to help them get there. Help me stop men dying too young.

Moustaches have been shaved, leaderboards have been closed, and eternal glory has been achieved.

It is my great honour to announce the Top 5 from this year’s Mo University Challenge.

Collectively, this community of 1,353 Mo’s from 291 teams across Australia raised an incredible $285,386. Just unbelievable.

This is where change is being made. You are the people creating a better future for men’s health. So from the tips of our moustaches to the bottom of our hearts, thank you to each and every one of you for the wonderful impact you’ve made.

Keep on changing the world,
Josh from Team Movember

Some serious movement in the rankings, and even more serious funds raised, with the Mo Uni Challenge cracking $200,000 for 2023!

These funds go directly to lifesaving programs, helping men live healthier, longer lives. Every one of you has made that possible - thank you.

The leaderboards don't close until the 12th of December, so put in that final push and share those Mo Spaces far and wide! Could there be a late shift in the top 5?

Time to bring it home,

Wow oh wow. Halfway through and we are blown away by your support.

We've had 24-hour relays, 60km solos, moustache tattoos... and we're only getting started.

Uni Mo's of Australia, give yourselves a huge pat on the back and keep up the incredible work. A big couple of weeks of goodness on the way.

Inspired by you all,
Josh from Team Movember

Monash MOs, WOW! It's been incredible seeing all the shave downs, moves made and $2.5K funds raised, and it's only the FIRST DAY of Movember!!

Feel free to keep on rallying those last minute teammates or join aboard as a solo fundraising warrior - the more support we can get the better.

We're looking forward to seeing what Monash University does this Movember. If there's any questions or any way in which we can support you (including providing social media templates and handy guides + materials), then please reach out to us.

Uni Mo's of Australia, we are LIVE!!!

Just like that, Movember has begun. So shave down those upper lips, get those running shoes on, and start shouting about the amazing cause that is men's health.

We've got 658 of you incredible university Mo's signed up and you've already raised an incredible $33,000. And it's only the 1st of Movember?!!

So share those Mo Spaces far and wide, keep encouraging your mates to sign up, and keep on changing the face of men's health. Thank you for everything you're doing.

It's Mo time,

It's Mo 22 - those Mo's will be feeling furrier, your legs fitter and your events ready to pop off! I'd love to see a couple of snaps of your Mo's posted on the Challenge page.

Boy it is close up the top of the University Challenge leader board - with QUT currently edging out the top fundraising university for the last three years UQ - with Monash following in a close third.

Regardless of the fundraising figures - keep parading that furry top lip, starting conversations and keeping your communities connected. Your are all doing such a fabulous job and all of us at Mo HQ are so grateful to be your Roadies.
