Things are getting HAIRY again this MOVEMBER! Are YOU?? Traditionally, men grow a moustache for the 30 days of November to raise money and awareness for men’s health. Put together a team and join the RGU Network where we will post weekly leader boards to show which teams /individuals are leading the way.

Movember is not just for men. The women of Movember, are known as Mo Sistas. They play a vital role in the success of Movember by supporting and encouraging the men in their life to get involved. Essentially, Mo Sistas do everything that Mo Bros do, without a Mo. There are 3 ways you can get involved in Movember .

TAKE THE MOVE CHALLENGE - Challenge yourself to get physically active and raise funds.

This is a challenge called MOVE, which is a commitment to make 30 moves in 30 days. MOVE gives people of the non-moustache growing variety a way to get involved. The campaign is particularly encouraging the participation of women aka MoSistas. You have full freedom to mix and match your activities from day to day to suit you. All the challenge asks is that you move more than you usually do. We will be organising various activities that will include runs, walks, zumba/salsa & yoga classes.
