The Movember Foundation is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health.
Movember challenges men to grow moustaches during November to spark conversation and raise funds for prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health problems.
This year marks the seventh year Cricket Australia has partnered with Movember and together we have helped raise more than $550,000 through our community action program - Cricket Cares.
Cricket Cares has been dedicated in their support of Movember and some of the biggest names in Aussie cricket have been part of the Mo growing journey.
In 2014, Australian Cricket Coach Darren Lehmann joins players Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, David Warner, Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch in the hairy cause. This year, they are supported by Mo Sistas Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning and Coach Cathryn Fitzpatrick.
Following his man-of-the-match performance in the opening Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test, speedster Mitchell Johnson promised to keep his lucky Mo for the duration of the series to help raise more funds for Movember. By the end of the series Mitch, had raised more than $38,000 for the cause and continued the awareness campaign for men’s health throughout the summer.
