Congratulations to everyone who took part in the RGU Movember campaign this year. Students who took part have been able to raise over £1300 for the Movember foundation. The month long fundraiser has challenged RGU students to raise awareness and funds to support men's mental and physical health. The main form of fundraising is for men to grow a moustache for the whole month and get sponsored by their friends and family. This year, RGU did more work around the MOVE fundraisers, where all students are invited to do thirty moves in thirty days, and RGU volunteers held special classes on yoga, salsa and zumba to keep students active.

 

 

Our top fundraisers were the RGU Rugby Club, and the LGBT+ Society. A number of student volunteers and groups got involved in the project, aiming to spread the message. RGU:TV created a quirky video to help promote the project:

The end result of the campaign is to support work by the Movember foundation on research on testicular and prostate cancer, along with supporting men's phycical inactivity and mental health. 

Congratulations to everyone who took part of the the month!
