By joining this movement you become part of our mission to help men live happier, healthier, longer lives.

Whether you Grow, Host or Give Monthly – solo or in a team – you’re raising much-needed funds and awareness for local men’s health initiatives, including the free men’s health screening events, Men's Health Reduce Your Risk presentations, and the Centre’s Equal Access Fund, providing financial subsidisation for prostate consultation, ultrasounds, biopsies, and radiation therapy.

Since 2010, MOvember Bermuda™ has raised over $544,576!  In 2020, 61 men in our community were directly supported through the Centre's equal access programme which subidises the cost of services when one's health insurance does not cover 100% of a clinical service, or covers the full cost of clinical services for those without health insurance.

Choose how you wish to participate from the following:

1.   GROW A MO or a beard for 30 days, your face will raise funds and awareness for men’s health. Wondering what a MO is? A MO is a powerful tool.  In what ever shape you grow the hair on your upper lip, your moustache makes a difference.

2.   HOST A MO-MENT go big or keep it simple. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause. Rally your colleagues/friends for a game of golf, bowling, tennis, or maybe a good old-fashioned BBQ – whatever you like. Ask people to donate what they would typically spend on a night out towards Men’s Health.

3.   GIVE FOR THE MO-NTH - make a donation $10, $20, $50, $100, any amount will make a difference.

Once you have registered, you can set up your online fundraising page by clicking the 'Create Sponsor Me' page button at the top of this page (have team name, photo and a blurb on why you are participating ready).

You will be invited to celebrate at the MOfinale! Check out the prize categories below.
